    What a morning! My son was leaving for work and ran back inside frantic! He said,"Mom HURRY! QUICK! THE CHICKENS!!!!"[​IMG]

    A sense of dread cloaked me and I couldn't rush, for I just knew something awful had happened to my feathered family. My heart sank, my palms were sweating. I crossed the threshold only to hear my big White Wyandotte Rooster, "Pinot" crowing for the first time! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    But that's not all. There was also this familiar sound of a hen clucking up a fuss. It was the sound--y'all know it, the "OH-MY-BUTT-I-LAID-AN-EGG" cackle. I rushed around tho their pen and the hen became silent. So I had no idea who it was. I lifted the hinged door to their coop and found this gorgeous egg. [​IMG] YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [​IMG]

    The egg is medium sized, so I don't think it was Omlette or Huevo --our BO hens. [​IMG] Could've been my RIR--Rosie, or possibly Piper, my SLW, or Whiskey or Tequila--GLW. I'm hoping to catch a gal in the act tomorrow. [​IMG]

    Ok, so I found out who was laying the egg(s). It was Omlette, my BO hen. By the end of the weekend, she laid 3 eggs! Yay![​IMG] [​IMG]

    So my oldest son, Forrest, said, "Wow Mom, now she's a 3-egg Omlet! [​IMG]
