    Buttercup, my final hold out in the egg laying department, has given in and laid her first egg at the ripe old age of six and a half months. It's exciting! But, I really don't have chicks any more, do I? So it's happy/sad, bittersweet, growing up. I suppose some day I'll have more babies, but for now my coop and run are comfortably filled with ten birds, so I shall have to be content. Anywho, here it is, next to one of the EEs eggs, which I should have cleaned before photographing:
