    DH and I overslept. I rushed out to open the coops up, not even taking time for a sip off my first cup of coffee. Opening the juvenile coop, I heard the sweetest sound in the world - PEEPING!!

    Thor is finally a daddy! And Doe, my poor SF broody who has been setting for more than 30 days, is finally a mama!

    OMG! This is soooooooo better than coffee! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    A bit of TMI - I ran back in the house and forced my DH to hurry up in the bathroom by screaming at him. I dragged him out to the coop, still in his house shoes. He wasn't nearly as excited as I am, I don't know why. [​IMG]
