OMG! Just when I thought something was REALLY wrong with my girls, they have restored my faith in them! LOL! Raia, my grand daughter/chicken rancher-partner(LOL!) came running in this morning from the hen house with our 1st egg! We had heard a ruckus so she ran back there to see if it was another mongoose raid causing the girls to squawk so loudly...nope! Just the loud clucking announcing an egg arriving! YAY! Of course, I had to scramble it up for Raia right away & she proudly announced to everyone that crossed her path that her hen "laid a egg" In her excitement, she patiently sat on "egg watch" all day outside the hen house awaiting another arrival...not today! I'm sure she'll be out there again at the crack of dawn tomorrow!
Ahhhh...the joys of childhood!
