    TRex laid her first egg today! I am so excited. I took it from her right after. She was panting a lot. She had been making a lot noise beforehand, and scratching a lot. She scratched all of the hay out of her laying space! Now it seems like she is looking for egg? Did I take it too soon? Is there a good way to take the egg from its mama?

    Thank you!

    Congratulations! There isn't any special way to take the eggs from mama. She may have deserted in a while any way. You know, like it never even happened.

    Congratulations, I don't think you wanted a brood hen or pullet this time of the year anyway.
