This is it folks - its first egg day. I'm so excited I want to tell everyone, phoned the om at work.....

I had a hunch it would be soon as the dear girl has been looking ready and building nests - wont use the nest box - so the rest had better hurry up and get laying. :toothy7:

Well done to Jemima! :cheers: I bet she got lots of attention and praise. I'm still disappointed if one of mine doesn't lay!

Congratuations! Will you dare eat it or will it stay on the shelf with a pink ribbon round it? :wink:

I'm still no nearer my own chickens :oops: . Very sad. But there's always so many other things that need doing...
