    I thought these were such cute pictures. A few of the girls have started to lay and all the others come in for " a look see".

    Miss Sliver Lace comes in to find a nice "quiet" nest to lay in.

    No chance of getting some privacy. Lets have a look see.

    Mr Roo cant help but come in to have a look at what all the fuss is about.

    Gee Wiz..Get lost Marshmellow, go get your own nest box!

    Marshmellow is going in for a much closer look.

    Finally..after some peace and quiet, a girl can lay an egg. (you can kind of see the brown egg under her, the white one is a wooden egg)

    Monkey see, Monkey do

    Ms Blackbeard trying to lay...gee wiz, what does it take to get this thing out !

    Finally...a cute little pink egg.

    Now its Sunflowers turn to lay. Oh, a beautiful mint green egg.

    If was worth the hour and half wait sitting in the corner of "Poultry Palace" to get theses.
