    I've had 3 eggs so far and 1 was laying when I left the house this morning so I probably have one waiting for me at home.

    I show all the other chickens the eggs when I get them. They look at me like I'm nuts. I hold it out and they come running like I have a treat and I say "look what _______(Boo or Purdy) gave me!" They look in my hand and see an egg and then look at me like "ummm momma it's an egg". They just walk away from me. [​IMG]
