    After 7 long months of waiting, Mabel finally laid an egg! She is our second to start laying, and spent about an hour on the nest today. I was puzzled as to what was going on when I saw her running around all day with no egg in the nest box, but when I went out to give them a treat later I found her egg in the run. Hopefully she hits the mark tomorrow! I'm used to nice clean eggs close to the house.
