    After two weeks of squatting, one of my Delawares laid an egg![​IMG][​IMG] No idea which one of my girls laid it though. I went nuts taking pictures of it as soon as I saw it.
    It was sitting next to the golf balls I placed in their nest box with the smaller part down and the widest part facing up.

    It didn't even fit in the egg carton - it was so tiny~! This one is the closest to the actual color.

    Next to a quarter for size.

    I was just beginning to believe that eggs coming from chickens was a myth. [​IMG]

    Great! Hopefully you will soon have more than you know what to do with, like me.
