    Here's a shot I took yesterday of our little buff sebright, Nelly. She's the tiniest little thing, but when she lays, the eggs are a nice size. I'm always amazed and think, "I can't believe that big thing came out of her."

    She's a real sweetie pie and seemed to enjoy coming inside for a photo session.
