    Yeah for you!!! How awesome! That is so eggciting!!! [​IMG]

    How old is she? We have a BR and she's got her comb and wattles in already, but no eggs....just wondering how much longer I have to wait! [​IMG]

    It will be fun to watch the eggs change and get bigger within the next few months! Keep posting those pix!
