    Lilbizzy was the lucky one to find it. It was in the nest box right next to the golf ball.

    It's a beauty- be sure to post it in the first egg thread!

    How nice to see your efforts rewarded. Mine will be 10 weeks Thursday so I have a long wait...[​IMG]

    We got our 2nd egg too!!! I came home from work and decided to take a peek, and there it was!! It was smaller than the first egg by a little bit, but just as exciting to find!!! I don't know if it came from the same hen or a different one. And someone has been in the other nest box because I can see fluffybutt indentations. The "ladies"(as my neighbor calls them) are 17 1/2 week old red sexlinks. I showed pictures of my first egg at work today. And I told my neighbor ( the one whose yard "the ladies" always hang out in) and she got all excited and couldnt wait to tell her husband!

    Amazing how much excitement 1 egg can bring. Who'd have ever guessed?
