    I was throwing some turnip and collard greens to the ten chicks and Anne's one-year-old silkie that was broodie when I got her a couple of weeks ago. Anyway, I just happened to glance at the back corner, and there they were in the pine straw, TWO LITTLE EGGS.
    I called Anne on the cell phone and told her; she's on her way home with her brother and sister from a niece's wedding in Pennsylvania.
    I want to thank all the little people I stepped on to reach this heighth of glory and say that it's too bad that none of you have an egg.
    Nya nya nya nya nyaaaa nya!
  2. Nine weeks before I get one, IF all goes well.
