Eggstatic!

First, thank all of you for your kind words and encouragement for our family and my mother. We are in for a hard couple months, and all the prayers we can receive are so much appreciated.
Yesterday, in all the confusion of the day, I didn't post that my buff orpington, Bella, laid her first egg!
She was quite restless for some time, she wanted me by her. Whenever I'd walk away from the coop, she'd come to the door clucking at me. I guess her first "birth" was a little frightening to her?
So this is her first triumph! Much smaller than the picture makes it appear, but a nice size for her very first. She was more relaxed today, just went in her nest, deposited her egg, and went about her business. So, two down, eleven to go.

How lovely for you and your beautiful hen! There's something special about that first egg! We are sadly down to only 3 baby chicks; four of them disappeared Sunday while we were away from the farm. I have securely sheltered Mama Carolyn and the little survivors. They're going to make it!
I'm going to be praying in faith over your mother and whatever challenges there are; we'll watch the Lord take care of all of you. Please keep us posted.
