    So we got two new hens the other day I posted ones pictures on here and they said it would be a bit for her to lay eggs so today I turned over the nest box becuase I realized my husband mad them too short I put a golf ball in and left well when I came back to feed them they were both sitting inside the box...well today after it hailed horribly I went to check them and my cute little shadow laid a beautiful tiny little egg! I'm so PROUD!!!!!!!! [​IMG]

    Great looking egg!! My house chicken, Kriket, is a bantam cochin frizzle that just started laying eggs. She has her own "house" in our house and she is so funny. One day just popped up with two nice small brown eggs. I was watching for the "pullet" eggs, just never found any. She now lays mostly daily with a skip now and then. She is very offended when I take her new egg away from her.
