    My DH came in the house and stated
    something is going on in the chicken
    coop, well Max has been very vocal, crowing and all,
    so I thought "just Max being the roo" and all, But, I did
    go check the nesting boxes.....NOTHING. We left and
    did some Christmas shopping and came back about
    4;30. Checked the boxes, and lo and behold, there
    was an egg! I suspect on of the leghorns. But, how eggicting
    I can not tell you. 5 months, and the wait is over!![​IMG]

    Quote:I think the first dozen or so will be the most expensive. Anyway, the first one was well worth the wait![​IMG]
