    Well it may not be her FIRST egg but it's her first egg since I owned her. [​IMG] A cute olive green one, I'll be collecting her eggs hopefully this whole week and then incubate the clutch see what I get! [​IMG]

    Congrats on your first egg!
    May I ask how old she is? Or should I say, how do they start to lay?
