Guess what girls??!!!

Do you remember my scare with my banties this week?
Do you understand why I was so scared that they were hurt?
Well that Carrie was hurt?
They were fine.
They have just started the love thing a couple weeks ago
and they have really bonded since then.
Well guess what!!!!
Carrie laid and egg today!!!!!
Of course she was very proud of it and laid it on my porch!!!!
Right beside the sliding glass door for me to be sure to see it!
I am just upset that I was gone and missed the show.I am sure she struted her stuff for a while after that one.
As far as I know this is her first egg, but I hope for many more.
I don't care if they are laid on the porch, I will gather them and when I get enough I will incubate them myself.
After that I may be able to break her from my porch.
I want some itty bitty black babies running around here!!!!

Thanks ladies!! I am so dagum excited. I made her a nest in an enamelware dishpan and sat it where she laid her egg today, for her to start using tomorrow. I whispered in her ear what I was expecting from her and she voiced understanding! will get a kick out of this one...hahahaha....
Danny came in the house this evening with mud all over the seat of his pants and showed it to me.....He said "I busted my butt!! I fell and slid all the way down the hill going down to the chicken coop!" This is his first time doing so!!!!!
