My little chocolate runner laid her first egg this morning. I have been on cloud nine all day. I tell everyone I see about it but of course my friends don't quite get what all the excitement is about. I know you guys will! I called my husband at work right away and he was every bit excited as me! Unfortunately, our little Judy laid her egg in the water pan. Can we still eat the egg or is it contaminated? I am so proud of my girl and will be anxiously awaiting the arrival of the next egg. We have three more girls. Two of them have a ways to go before they start to lay (judging by the pelvic bones) but our black girl is getting close so hopefully we will have two laying soon.
