One morning earlier in the week, Fay (the loopy Fayoumi) wasn't anywhere to be seen when I let the girls out. I quietly checked the nest boxes, and I could see her settled down in one. I rushed back to the house to tell DH that I thought Fay might be about to lay her first egg,
Later in the day I went out to check, and there it was. A snall, white(ish) egg. Not bone china white like my hybrid leghorn Lily used to lay, a pinky white like Lotti the purebred leghorn used to lay. Fay, being a very small breed, laid a small egg.
Small, perfect. I danced the Egg Dance all the way back to the house.
