    Ok so my Buff Orpington hen Henrietta layed her first egg today!! YAHHH, but in the craziest way imaginable.
    She finally decided to come outside into the run because I was out there feeding greens to the others. Well she was so totally up my behind I was tripping over her while racking the run. Well I then went into the baby coop to clean up some and she went nuts trying to come thru the wire behind the wire anything to get into the pen with me, well she did manage to get herself hung up behind the pen and run and wall so I went to her rescue and she basically jumped right into my shirt as I was still bent over when she got unstuck, so I just stood up and low and behold my first egg dropped right through my shirt and onto the sand, TG my run is sand and the girls so far seem to have tough shells, because it did not break.......but what a crazy way to lay that first egg HUH I laughed so hard I almost dropped her. Crazy chicken, she has always been one of my friendliest hens and I'm so glad she came to me for help.
    I think that is exactly what she was up too and why she had such a fit when I left the run to clean out the baby pen. She has never tried to follow me when I left the run or even remotely seemed interested in getting into the baby pen with all those silly 10 week old roosters.
    So anyone else have a crazy first egg story??

    hi Ghost,

    She loves, loves, loves you, and doesn't quite understand the egg laying business yet. Now you will have to be there complete with shirt every time she lays. lol.

    Cute post, and congratulations on that first egg.
