The first pullet egg

First pullet egg!As I finished up my assignment for class, Mark came in with a big smile on his face.  I looked up, questions in my eyes.

Then I jumped to my feet, pulling the speaker cables off the desk in my haste.  There in his hand was....

...our first pullet egg! 

That's right, the little girls have started to lay.  The first eggs are always a bit small, but we know they'll get bigger and more numerous.  Soon we'll be swimming in eggs!
