Petunia's First Egg... Finally!

I was beginning to think she might just be too mean to lay eggs. But maybe she was so mean because she was the only one who wasn't laying eggs!

She didn't appear to be nesting the days prior to today and I didn't see any other signs of her preparing to lay an egg. I guess after 9 1/2 months she was just ready to get down to business. When I got home today, there it was.
It's the long, thin white one in between Ruby's (white) and Clara's (brown). Ingrid hasn't laid an egg in nearly 6 weeks, so I don't have one for comparison. She's been moseying through her molting session. Hopefully she's almost finished. Thankfully, she's not naked!
