    Earlier today I saw my 19 week old Dominique "Lovable" in the nesting box at 11:30 and again at 1:00. I knew something was up. Well she laid her first egg. [​IMG] Here are some pics.

    We got our first egg today too. Audrey Hepburn' first production was delicious today on white toast with butter.
