Guess what?

I found our first egg today!!!!  
After just posting this morning that our hens are going to lay any day, it happened today!!!!

When I got back from picking my brother and sister-in-law up from the airport, the kids took them outside to show them around.  Redmond came inside in a panic because Pancake was out of the chicken gate.  We got her back in, but sure enough I turned around 5 minutes later and saw this:

My brother mentioned that she may be looking for a place to lay.  She has become very sweet and affectionate lately, which I've read can be a sign of a soon-to-be laying hen.

So, I put some golf balls in the coop, hoping that if she did need to lay, she'd do it in there.

A few hours later, I went in the coop and found this beauty waiting for me:

I can't even explain how excited I was when I saw it.  And, of course, everyone in my house was napping when I found it so I had no one to tell!
It's so perfect!  Redmond has already claimed it for his breakfast tomorrow.  

Can't wait to find more!!
