    So to all of you who have read my many post on about my chickens who lay no eggs get this. We were out admiring my girls [​IMG] we just got our new roofing material to finish our new winter coop (as we want to make sure they are warm during winter) and I said to my hubby, "Hun, look how red "chicken nuggets" comb is getting, I bet with in a day or two in their new coop (with electric) we get an egg!" and hubby says " I bet your right, she is looking really red!" [​IMG] we gave them some treats and hubby stops looks in their coop and their lies a golden egg [​IMG] (so ok it was not really gold, but it meant just as much to us as if it had been!) [​IMG] my 4 yr old son joined in our happy dance celebration! [​IMG] We are so proud of her (she is our only standard size chicken so we are sure who it came from) we gave her more treats and told her what a good girl she is and she tried talking to us (still working on the chicken dialect [​IMG]) But 7 months of feed and two new coops and endless treats have finally paid off (well....kinda, its like a $100.00 egg) [​IMG]
    Now to decide....who gets to eat it??? [​IMG]
    Thought I would share my GREAT news! ( Wait till I get to tell the neighbors I only need a half a dozen LOL) [​IMG]

    He was so excited he is going to try to get the night off so he can finish their new nesting boxes, and I say Hey, if the egg gives him ambition, all the more the egg is worth to ME LOL!!!!
