    I just wanted to let Justusnak and everyone else know that one of the 4 rescues I got from her on Sunday laid an egg. Our first egg in fact. It's smaller than the size of a quarter. Our other hens have yet to lay eggs!

    I was so happy when I found it....it was right in the middle of the coop on the floor! Not like I have a dozen nest boxes for them to sit in or anything...But I was so happy that I went running from the coop to the house to get my phone and call my DH who was at Tractor Supply at the time.

    That's great!
    One of the ones still here laid an egg yesterday evening. :)
    It's a good sign that we're taking care of them well!
