    [​IMG] Here it is, Our first Real Egg! [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    This was laid during a 3 hour period when no one was around to see "Who Dunnit"
    Our primary suspects are Mrs.Nezbit (Australorp)and Domineak(Dominique), although any of the four could have laid it.

    The clues: A few small bits of black feather were found on the egg; this may not mean anything since both Domineak and Mrs. Nezbit have been scratching around in there.

    Four days ago, Domineak laid this and she has not laid an egg since then,
    unless the new one one is hers.

    If you have any information that might help solve this mytery, you are urged to come forward. [​IMG]

    As I was posting the First egg pic, Domineak went into the nest box and started sitting, she was in there for over an hour
    [​IMG]

    When she finally left, we found this!!!
    Domineaks Second Egg
    ( Her first egg that came out like a real egg)
    [​IMG]

    Colleen forced me to post a this picture since I posted a picture of her.
    I'm not sure who this is but he's holding our egg. [​IMG]

    Since Domineak laid this last egg, and earlier Mrs.Nezbit had sat in the nest box for quite a while, it looks as though the mystery of who laid the first one is solved.

    So there it is... Mrs.Nezbit's First Egg And Domineaks first intact egg, within a few hours [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
