It happened! The girls laid their first egg!!! Of course they didn’t think much of the nesting boxes and chose the stack of 2x4s in the corner behind the door. I was changing their water and putting some dry straw in the unused nesting boxes when there to my right was a lone warm egg…I then had to search the entire coop just in case there were more, there were not. I gave them a pep talk, told them how proud I am and then ran to house to explode with the news, just a great moment.
There will be eggs everyday now, simple joys.
