    [​IMG] Happy Days!!

    So our 5 SL's born April.6 still had not shown any signs, what so ever of laying. To my suprise last night i walked into the coop, to find 4 perfect eggs ALL of them laid in the nest boxes!! [​IMG] I couldnt believe it! I was in such shock! [​IMG] I was speechless, and when my dad saw my face he thought that one of the hens must have died or somthing! It was awesome! First eggs are always so great! Here are some pics!

    Quote:You just crack it into your hand, or in this case scoop, and let the whites fall through the fingers. You can further rinse off remaining white under the tap. Just don't open your fingers too far or you'll lose it.
