    What an exciting week I've had. I've gone from my first hatch, to my first egg. My little Bantam laid me a very pretty egg, and to think I almost lost her yesterday. Came home yesterday and she was gone from my backyard, I was just sick about it. We live in the city so she is a city slicker, and made an escape..she's the only one of my Hens that can really fly. Luckily my 4 y/o son spotted her several hours later as he was looking out the window, She was across the street enjoying the neighbor's yard.

    Here is her egg.
