This was about a week ago.

It's really cute to see them taking turns sitting on it.

To lay only one egg is a bit unusual, however, not unheard of.

Actually, she laid 3 but the first two were broken. Maybe that explains it.

Be sure to provide her with a lot of calcium, things like chopped cuttle bone, oyster shell grit and maybe a vitamin/mineral powder to go into the water.
