    Our sweet little RIR, Ruby, laid a beautiful little egg for us this morning. She is 21 weeks old and is the first in our flock of 4 to lay. My birthday was yesterday, I consider the egg a belated bday gift [​IMG] I would submit a pic but I can't figure out how to upload it...
    I can't wait for the other 3 to start laying!

    Congratulations to both you first eggers! [​IMG]


    I was just making my son his birthday dinner and was cracking eggs, thinking:I love using my own eggs!
    I have had eggs for a year now. (I had my cholesterol checked this morning...ummm. I don't care! When I go, I'll go happy!)
