    At long last, after 20 weeks, Pearl (finally) layed the first egg today! Yay!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]
    It was about an inch and a half long, creamy white, with a nice hard shell. It's in my fridge now.
    She even layed it in one of the nest boxes! I was/am so proud of her!

    Eight more 'first eggs' to go! I'm so excited!

    We didn't eat it yet. My sweet girl layed another one this morning! I figured it would be kind of sporadic, and was prepared to only get a couple a week for a while. DH is bringing her a bag of crickets from the bait shop today! Yummy!
