    Last week I heard one of my girls singing the egg song but then haven't heard it again and when I get behind them they squat to me and this morning my daughter checked the box (as she does daily, religiously!) and there was a perfectly shaped big brown egg in there!
    Whoot whoot!!

    What did you do with your first egg, scramble, fry?? How old are your girls?

    Still waiting here, ours are just 17 weeks, but I check the nest everyday, just in case! [​IMG]

    Isn't it awesome? It's been 2 weeks for us since the first one and STILL every one is a surprise. I don't know what we thought would happen (duh!) but it's still exciting [​IMG]
