    Just got home and this is what I found.... I posted this in Halloween Hatch as well but I couldn't help myself, I'm sorry!!! I almost through this egg out too last week because it had a big crack in it so I marked it with a big S and to my surprise this was it!!

    Quote:Thank you!! My husband is a bit of a perfectionist so really I have to give him all of the credit for building the coop and nest boxes, I hope they are big enough for all of the chicks to fit in. I told him he should cut out a slat but he sighs**....lol...the chick just walks around the coop in front of mom and even though it's hot 87 outside I still have a heat lamp in there just in case....oh I'm just rambling, I can't believe how excited I am...

    If it's a boy we'll name him Jack ( Jack-o-lantern )
    If it's a girl we'll name her ....still not sure? any suggestions?
