    What a BIG first egg! My pullet just laid her first egg and it was A LOT smaller than that!

    Congratulations! You must be thrilled!

    Well, she is almost 9 months old - she waited quite a while to put that egg out! It is also very skinny, but doesn't show in this photo. Yes, I am thrilled! Our first non-brown egg! Here are some better photos to show size.
