    I went out this morning and lo and behold, a single solitary brown egg was in the nest boxes!!!!
    I did some minor figuring after showing it to the wife, and after all expenses said and done, materials, time, and labor, feed, and effort ......setbacks from a marauding horde of oppposums, heavy duty horse panel, another batch of chickens from hatchery, heat lamps, and allllllll the watching and waiting and the anxiety there within!! I figure this one egg is gonna cost me right at $1200.00
