    It is over 23 weeks and I got my first egg from one of my 3 RR's. [​IMG] The egg was on the smallish side and had white specks, but I guess for a first egg that isn't unusual.

    I went out to check on them this morning and she was on the nest raising a commotion, singing away. She was so loud I was afraid the neighbors would complain. I ran inside and got the camera. She let me shoot the whole process. These are the beginning and the end shots. She stood up and dropped the egg - klunk! Is that normal?



    She has been squatting when you touch her for almost 2 weeks. The others just run when I come near. I guess they have a while longer to go?
