    After 21 weeks of waiting in anguish, I got my very first egg today [​IMG]. Yes siree, my girls are officially laying eggs [​IMG] It's little, but it's an egg! I have a question though, not quite sure when she layed it as it was behind the nest box. It was cold and could have been since the last time I looked behind the boxes which was two days ago. I just assumed they would lay IN the boxes as I am a first timer. It's been in the high 50's at night and high 70's during the day - so can I eat it? Is there a way to tell if it's good? I'll get a picture up later DH has the camera with him at work.

    Yummeee Yessiree!

    Those yummy new eggs only need refrigeration after they've been refrigerated! what? You can keep them room temp a long time however once they've been refrigerated they need to be kept refred!
    that should be a wonderful egg!
    enjoy and congrats

    Congrats on the first egg.

    I lived in Murfreesboro from '63 to '69 which I am sure was before you were born. Went to Hobgood Elementary.
