After 138 days of life on this planet, one of our girls laid an egg. It was still warm when Jerry discovered it plopped in front of a nesting box. That is how our girls roll. They are an advanced bunch and unconventional too. My research of Buff Orphingtons indicated that it would be 5.5 months before they would gift us an egg. Our lucky day. Now every squawk sends us running to the coop for more.
