    I was having a rough day today, I got home from a hard day at work, and without even changing like I usually do I went straight out to the coop (well after grabbing a beer), and I thought, Lord it would be cool to find and egg.....I thought I doubt it they're only 17 weeks 4 days old, and I've been reading on BackYardChickens and most don't get their eggs until 18-20 weeks.

    I took my Coors light, and my attitude and strolled into the run. The girls came flying out of the coop excited to see me. I checked the outside water, then went into the coop, I looked across the floor nothing, then scanned the 8 nest boxes, 4 on top 4 down,......then across the top again...wait.....on the far right, what is that ........[​IMG] is that an egg???!!! can't be....maybe hubby planted it like southernchicks, cuz he thought that was funny, but wait..............[​IMG]

    nope it was a perfectly shaped, beautiful little round light brown pullet egg! [​IMG] My attitude was quickly reformed as I scooped up my little treasure and carefully took it in to preserve for hubby to see!

    I think I know which one laid it, she's small, looks like a silver grey dorking but doesn't have 5 toes, and has grey legs. I wish I had all my pics hosted....I will soon, but she was loud and proud when I walked in.

    Hope to have pics soon, just wanted to share the joy! It's amazing how a little egg can turn a rough day into a better day![​IMG]

    I told him all my excitement was wasted on the fake egg that when i finally find a real one I will just be like "oh look...an egg".

    I'm so happy for you. Sorry you had a crappy day.​
