    ......AND I was afforded the priviledge of seeing it happen! Went out to the coop this morning as usual, but I saw only 2 of the girls. Panic at first, of course, but went around to check nesting boxes. Sure enough, there she was in the second one. At first I thought she was sick...this relentless heat and all. I pet her a few minutes and she barely flinched. I went ahead and filled the feed and changed and iced the water all the while worried.

    When she still hadn't come out, I went back to the box and talked to her and pet her some more. She stood up and looked a little wobbly..my heart sank. First thought...heat stroke!

    All of a sudden.....it dropped out! It....was.....MAGICAL!!! My beautiful baby looked at me then scurried out to get herself a much deserved breakfast and long cold drink!

    I can not tell you the thrill I have been on all day!!!

    They are 21 weeks old today!

    I'm heading out there in a few to see if anyone else has a gift for me!

    You are going to be so thrilled!

    How exciting! I'd love to see it happen - but my girls are too skittish around me yet. Maybe when I raise some from chicks, they'll be more comfortable with me. Congratulations - it's a beautiful egg!
