    I went to check on my hens this morning, and looked at the nests, which had never before been used (except to roost in LOL) and the top middle one had a pretty indention in the back! Peering into the bottom of the indention was a golf ball [​IMG] and a brand new EGG! Yay! Now I cant decide if i want to take it or let her have more chicks. I totally dont need them, but just get overwhelmed with the idea that I must.... have... more.... CHICKS!!!!! LOL
