I was unloading groceries from the car and I heard one of the girls making the most God awful racket! I thought for sure she was hurt and somehow she had gotten caught behind or under something inside the coop, so I ran, ok hobbled as fast as I could, dropping bags as I went to save her!! As I peered into the window to see what was wrong, she (white Plymouth Rock, 1 day shy of 22 weeks old) nonchalantly hopped down off the roost and then I saw it....on the poop board....in all its glory. It was the most beautiful, perfect egg I have ever seen in my life. I gently cradled it in my hands and carried it inside. It was then I realized there was NO ONE HOME BUT ME!!!! ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I placed it into the ceramic chicken egg holder I bought just for this occasion and took the pictures below.

I want to bronze the egg. I can't bring myself to break it. It is the most expensive egg I have ever bought. (Gulp....nearly $1000....but worth every penny!)

Happy hobble dance time!!!!!

Wish that you could preserve it some way like new stores that frame and place on the wall, the 1st dollar that they make. That would be so cool.
