    I came home from work yesterday to check the coop yet again--something was different!! I am using a wicker basket for a nest box and it had been moved to the center of the coop and there in the middle of the basket was the FIRST egg!![​IMG] Pure excitement--I couldn't get the door open fast enough. It had a funny shape and felt very heavy. I told DH I think it may be a double yolker. This morning I fried it up and sure enough a double yolker. That was the cherry on top--never had a double yolk egg before. Here are the pics.

    I had DH nail the nest to the floor--she must have did some major wiggling her time around. I'm hoping for another today! [​IMG]
