    After much (!) fuss this girl finally created an egg. She tried several nests, one that already had two birds in it, and ended up on the pine shavings. Whatever!

    I sure love that nice deep brown color of the egg! I think its hilarious seeing 2 or more hens cramming together in one nest box! [​IMG] All of my girls have their own "special" nest box that no one else can use!

    Nice Egg,

    looks big for a first egg too. What a cute picture of the crowd in the nest box.
