    Congratulations. It's always so exciting and, my goodness, did they wait a while. Your hen reminds me of the two I have that lay the same green eggs. They are fantastic egg layers. They have nearly the same birth date too. Maybe ours came from the same hatchery-via-feed store.

    Friendly's looking at the camera like, "What's the big deal already?"

    Also, this time come spring, you won't be needing to buy any store eggs.[​IMG]
