    [​IMG]:weee FINALLY ! I been sitting home with a knee replacement, and today "Bossy" was overly talkative, I guess it's because she knew something were'nt quite right. All morning long, and into the afternoon she was cackling and the gang was surrounding her wherever she went. She'd squawk, then our roo "Blue" would chime in a coupla notes, and back and forth,,,,,,,I had to go to town, came back and my wife was home. I told her about Bossy's antics, so she went in and walked around the run. I suggested she look in the coop again 'cause there were no eggs this morning when I did chores,and lo and behold!!! There in the far right nest box was a perfect little brown egg! I started smiling, my wife accused me of "planting it"calling ma a cheat etc, but after a good laugh, finally I convinced her. What a relief. Bossy just turned 5 months old, give 'er take a week. [​IMG] (Hope the icons work, some do some dont!)
