An Egg!

Hot the hen has finally laid an egg!
I'm so proud of her!
of course, for some reason she laid it on the hard, wooden shelf next to the soft nest box filled with dried leaves.....

But back to the story-
It was a medium to medium small cream colored egg.
I am hoping that this is the start of an egg laying phase for her. Most chicken related information I find says that chickens go through cycles of laying and resting. Like we do with work. Five days on, two days off. I never noticed when I was a kid, since I had 12 hens back then. There were always eggs in the nest box.

Now if only I could find a way to make her broody, that would be great. Eggs are nice, but I want more chickens first!
