    this is SO exciting.

    my dad asked me just last night when 'those chickens of yours are gonna lay some eggs'!

    either a BO or RIR hen is the culprit... [​IMG]

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I can't wait for eggs. First you are excited for the coop, then the thrill of chicks, now the desperation of waiting for eggs. I have a long wait LOL they are only 1 week old LOL

    She (ever-mysterious 'she') even laid it in the nesting box, not under the bushes where they spend so much time...

    GOOD HEN! (whoever you are)
