    I got a wonderful,beautiful,fantastic egg today. I'm so eggcited! My 26 wk old RIR "Lucille" finally did it after many days of practice. You would think I layed the egg. Me and my kids were running around the yard screamin and carrying on.. Good Goly what a rush! Still waitin on the other 2, one just started squatting about 2 days ago. [​IMG] Photos are with a store bought egg, really nice size I think for a 1st timer shell seems nice and hard, haven't cracked it yet (maybe I'll wait till I get another) The kids keep opening the fridge to look at it they are so proud![​IMG]

    Yep....nothing like the first egg except maybe the next one! I still get excited when I go out and there is an egg in the nest.

    I think I am making it my personal mission to tell this....but there is a lady on here that blew out her first egg and saved it to hang on her Christmas tree.....I think that is so neat! Of course I read it after eating my first egg.....WTG on your first egg!!!
