    Sure can! sounds ridiculous to be so excited over an egg but these girls have had work and time put into them so i suppose it makes some sense to those who have done the same [​IMG]

    Nothing like someone hiding a freshly laid egg for you to find! We have gone to a friends house before and they have chickens. We spent the whole day sticking our hands in nest boxes.CONGRATS! Is this your first flock? If it is it only makes it MORE exciting.
