    Well, sort of...one of his girls laid her first egg yesterday, and I found it in the coop this morning. Buddy is my pet OEGB that I've had for nearly three years. He hasn't had any wimmen until recently, and I wasn't sure how old they were. Unfortunately, the egg was cracked, but at least now I know he'll be makin' babies!

    I was kind of surprised at the size of it though...these pullets are pretty small, and the egg was much bigger than I expected![​IMG]

    Here's the egg compared to a bantam frizzle Cochin. It may look small, but if you know how small a OEGB is, yep, it pretty much looks like it wasn't comfortable to lay it.
