    Alright, I am liking this one but I have a question....you say "a hen and HER eggs". Categories are egg colors. What about those precious hens and all the eggs they can steal from all the other hens. [​IMG] I have some really sweet pics I would LOVE to enter but most of the eggs under these little beauties are gathered from their flock mates. [​IMG]

    Apparently she had been in the nest for HOURS...decided she couldn't lay the egg...walked out of the nest box and it dropped out of her! lol! Dad was checking on her because she seemed "off"..well now we know why! lol!
