    My husband walked in this morning and said very seriously, "You'd better go look in the coop." I dropped everything and ran because the way he sounded I was convinced there were half a dozen dead birds in there...but instead, I found the prettiest little brown egg I've ever seen.

    That it should happen this morning, of all mornings, just brings me the deepest joy.

    I still have no eggs from my hens!

    Can anyone point me to a vido that includes the sound of this egg laying squawk?

    9 chickens, 3 days, 3 gorgeous eggs...each one a tad larger...I think she's getting the hang of it! I can't wait to figure out who it is!

    I'm proud of ALL of my girls, though. Still can't believe they're all grown up! And Lynne, I'm ready for more! I have friends who are lined up. :) They've saved their egg cartons for me, so I guess I gotta share!

    Congrats! That sounds like my hubby. He never goes to the coop and went to shut the door and found a baby egg in the run...it must have fell out of her and she didn't know what to do. He didn't tell me just to go take a look! I still have that egg. It is the smallest one I ever got!! I'm sure it's all white and no yolk but I'll never know!

    OMG, I'm so glad you still have it.

    I thought I might be crazy. I had my daughter take pictures of this one and I'm carrying the egg in my purse wrapped in several layers of paper towels and in a zip lock baggie. I have shown it to anyone who makes the mistake of acknowledging my presence.

    :)

    Yep...the crazy chicken lady...they fear me in the post office...
