    I've been telling everyone that my new batch of hens would start laying in september (they'd be 20 weeks old then). Well I thought I would be wrong after all and then tonight I found a pullet egg. Its the 30th so I was right its still September after all. So here is my wonderful first egg from one of my new girls (and its a perfect egg, big for a first egg and a perfect egg shape too).

    Quote:There's nothing like it, is there?!! I was almost as "EGG-CITED" with my first egg as I was with my first child!! My wife still laughs at me when I collect the eggs and show them to her with such pride - as if I laid them myself!!

    Oh! It's so cute!

    What is it about chicken eggs that makes us go ga-ga? Honestly, we're like new mothers when our babies lay their first eggs. HA!!!
