Well this afternoon my mother informed me to come and see something. I didnt think I would be looking at this brown thing called an egg. But there I was amazed and astonished at the little egg. She said she found it cleaning our black hens sleep area. I was already coming to think on who could have layed the egg herself. I know its Silver. She has been doing some quite unusual behavior lately. I attributed it to being squatting-like gestures. I wonder are there any other signs out there that our little hens are ready to go in the laying department that we might be missing? We know of one already . We are most excited over this first egg.
