I’m being all cool about this right now, but, believe me, all my friends and family got a photo texted to them like someone had just given birth. Which is funny because my sister-in-law is actually about to give birth–three-days-passed-her-expiration-date-about-to-give-birth– and that’s what we should really all be focused on right now. Sorry, Lindsey, I am not trying to steal your thunder! I’m sure she’s really worried.
It is a lovely, lovely egg. The prettiest shade of palest pink….and I found it sitting directly in the middle of the garden path, like someone squatted and ran. I almost stepped on it….let’s all be grateful this did not occur….I would have been inconsolable.
Many have asked me, “Well, who’s is it?” And, really, I have no idea! I have my suspicions, though….
Millie has been doing the ‘egg squat’ for a couple of weeks now (supposedly a sign that they are ready to lay), but beyond that, this situation is just so Millie. It is just so like her to drop that first egg in the center of the path, like, “Yeah. I did it. Don’t be jealous.” But time will tell! I have read that sometimes you’ve got to put a couple of decoy eggs in the nesting box to encourage them to lay there….think I might have to try that and see what comes of it.
Eggs! Finally! I am way too excited about this.
