    Well, after threatening my girls with the idea of chicken fajitas, someone laid me a perfect little brown egg--just 1 day before the 18 week mark! I went out Saturday morning to finding nothing, once again, but when I came back around 10:30 there in the next box it was. I was quite surprised with how perfect it was--medium brown with a few dark brown speckles, clean, and practically perfect in every way [​IMG] The shell was a lovely consistency and the egg was delicious!

    I'm very curious to know who laid me this egg, but no luck finding out. Whoever it was took the day off yesterday but felt I deserved another today :p

    It's so exciting and I just wanted to share with you guys because I know ya'll understand! I feel so proud of my girls after weeks of waiting, but it's also a bit bittersweet because they are all truly grown up now. I can't believe it's only been 18 weeks since I was on here freaking out over a bit of runny poo or brooder temperatures [​IMG]

    I'm off to class right now, but will come back with a picture later!
