    I got the best Christmas gift ever today. MY FIRST EGG!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    I didn't think I would get an egg until end of Jan but I got a Christmas surprise instead. It was a RIR named Lucille. She was checking out the nest box yesterday and was following me around the yard all day and all morning today. She went back to the nest box around 9 am and when my son and I went out at 1 he found the egg. YIPPEE so happy. Will post a pic soon.
