    1st eggs are so eggciting! Our girls have been laying since late July and already the eggs have become notably larger. We still have a couple hens that are due for their first egg, and we can tell when it's newbie egg or if it's from one of the girls that have been laying since July. YAY! It's really is like you have waited FOREVER!
