    Well I had just retrieved one egg from the nest box this morning, brought it in and went back out thinking I would finally remove the golf balls from nest because they seem to be laying in the nests without the golf balls and not using the ones with them. Anyway, opened the box and WHOA....a big black thing was in the nest. Took my brain that nanosecond to realize it was a chicken [​IMG] My heart is still racing. First time there's actually been a chicken in the box when I lifted the lid. Luckily she too laid an egg so today was my first "two egg" day. Now if my heart attack will hold off I might get to eat those two eggs.
