    What is the breed of chicken that laid that egg? I. too, am breathlessly awaiting the first reddish egg from one of my five new Welsummers. None yet have appeared.

    I think it was one of my Rhode Island Reds. When I went down last night to give them water, one was scratching around in the nest box. Alas, I do not get to eat it however as my husband accidentally knocked it off the counter and broke it :-/

    I am new to chickens and I got my first egg Monday, well, there were 2 so she laid one Sunday too. Found another yesterday but not today. My chicken is a 9 month old d'uccle so they are little eggs, but so cute! I was like a new mom excited, lol!

    I didn't realize it would be so exciting! I was bent over grabbing the waterer and happen to glance in the nest boxes. I was like "oh no way!!" Lol. Off to the feed store tomorrow to buy oyster shell :)

    First eggs are always exciting. I've had chickens for 13 years now, and I still celebrate and get excited over a pullet's first egg! It's a wonderful thing. [​IMG] Merry Christmas to you and your birds.
