    My little silky girl "poopie" laid her first egg today, she is extra special since out of all 8 of the chicks we picked in the beginning, she ended up being the only girl the rest either died in the first few days, or turned out to be roo's. This is also our first egg ever!! AND we got to watch her do it, so exciting. Her's is the smaller tan one![​IMG][​IMG]

    Congrats! I remember getting my first egg. It was such a neat feeling. I thanked her afterwards.

    She has a cute little face. :)

    Congrats!

    I remember getting my first egg! I had just got her home, and she laid an egg! I was so excited, I didn't know what to do! So I called the breeder, and told her "she Laid an egg, what should I do!"


    She said, "eat it!" [​IMG]
