    MY FIRST EGG!

    Woke up Thanksgiving morning to hear bok bok buk GAWK. I dashed outside, held my breath, and opened the nesting box. TADA: a perfect little first egg from my BSL, Gwen, nestled in next to the golf ball. Nicely done, Gwen. [​IMG] First squat to first egg in about 5 days.

    I had been telling people that we hoped to get eggs by Thanksgiving when we got the chicks in May.

    Now I can start saving up eggs for Christmas breakfast!! [​IMG]

    ARG - on DBF's comp and the USB isn't responding. Will have to upload it another time or get him to do it.

    But it's a perfect little brown egg. Go Gwen, go Gwen, go Gwen!!
