    Never thought I'd be so excited over an egg, lol.

    I went into the coop this morning and saw no eggs. [​IMG]

    About 15 minutes ago I was in there changing their water and scooping poop and lo and behold, I see that they made a nest in one of the boxes and there in the center, an egg.

    Giddy with excitement I went to show my wife and daughter.

    While my daughter was happy about this, my wife called me a retard, lol.
