    I have been waiting for AGES for an egg and this evening when I went to feed the girls and defrost their water, as normal here on Vancouver Island.....and what did I see but 2, yes 2, perfect little brown eggies!!!

    I am so so happy....my babies are grown up (sniff) [​IMG]

    The likely suspects are 2 very vocal Red Sex Links called Audrey and Jasmine. Still waiting for my white unknown breed to lay at 7.5 months!!

    [​IMG][​IMG] I am really eggcited for the both of you. I have a smile on my face as I remember my first (3 weeks ago) and still get the same feeling today when I went out and there were 5 eggs from 5 girls.
