Probably way to many egg jokes out there, but I was so excited to see these after almost giving up all hope that our two chicks(we'd raised since Easter) would ever begin to lay. I'd pretty much written them off and only "checked" for eggs whenever I'd change their hay -- not that they needed it for any reason. I was really beginning to resent them. It had been about a week since I'd changed their hay so I thought I should probably change it while I was down there feeding them. And when I opened the door ... surprise! Ten of 'em! Ten eggs right there! Jackpot! I couldn't believe it! After five months and 16 days, those two little babies laid 10 eggs in a week. It was a fine morning on Monday.
