    I wish I could get a picture of our perfect little brown egg!! I took the kids to the zoo today for their last day of summer vacation (school starts tomorrow). When we came home around 4ish, there it was neatly placed next to the golf balls in one of our two nests. I am the proudest mother around!! My DH told me in a girlie high pitched voice, "You better get on line and tell your chicken friends right away." And then gave me the wink, wink. He knows me all too well, doesn't he???

    PS. I should have titled it FINALLY we got our first egg because Tweety is 22 1/2 weeks old. I just wanted to mention that so that people know there is hope out there for their 20 and 21 week olds!!!
