    Well with winter here and everything my chickens have been on a strike and have not laid in a while. Well today my dad and I were out feeding the chickens and dad is like go and check on that one over there see if something is wrong because she was just sitting there. Well low and behold my one of my RIR was laying an egg. I was so happy but I wish I had more so that I could incubate them. Oh well
    Egg is not the best I have seen but it is quite large and at least I got one. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
