    Yeah! There is nothing like the rush of finding the first egg and the anticipation of others after they start laying!

    Congratulations. I'm sooooooooo jealous! Mine are 17 weeks, and the next few weeks are going to go by incredibly slowly.

    Are you going to eat it, or keep it?

    Awesome! It's so cute. Are you going to fry it up and eat it?

    Oh boy....i had not thought about saving it. My daughter is an artist, so i suppose we could do something nice with it. OMG.....I dont know. I'll have to think about it.
    Maybe i'll ask her tomorrow. I just cant believe it really happened to me [​IMG]

    I can wait to see what tomorrow will bring [​IMG]
