    [​IMG] Hi all, just had to share the exciting news! We have had this small flock of four since October and today was the first day that all 4 laid eggs together! Yeah. I was surprised since it was cold here, only about 5 degrees. Go girls!![​IMG]

    that's great. I can' wait until mine start laying. What kind of chickens are they, and how old are they?

    Congrats! Give the girls an extra treat for laying in such cold temps. And be sure to blow out those firsts and save them!

    Congrats! I can't wait until mine start laying, too. It'll be a while, since they're only 6 weeks old. Do you have pics of their first eggs?

    Weird! Our 3 girls just started laying 2 days ago.

    Maybe NH chickens have to be chilled first like tulip bulbs.
