So, I know there are a lot of us on here patiently (or maybe not so patiently) waiting for that magical first egg. Either we are gazing wistfully into the future, crossing off the days on our calendars until our hens reach the minimum 'laying age,' or, we're staring at those same calendars and scratching our heads as the date has come and gone with no sight of an egg. So, I thought it might be fun to start a little contest while we wait. Here are the rules: 1.) You can enter up to 3 hens as your Egg Race contenders 2.) Please include a pic of your hen with stats on age and breed 3.) Go ahead and post updates if you like of any developments (squatting, squawking, etc), and be sure to post pics as soon as your egg arrives. Golf balls, ping pong balls, and plastic easter eggs do not count! As of right now, we have no prizes, but maybe if we are extra lucky, some of our fellow BYCers will feel some pity for us as we wear a path to our nest boxes with our constant 'egg checks' and donate some goodies to give to the winners. Have Fun!
