    I got my first egg today from my 22.6 week old Delaware Bridget. She is the 1st of my 8 girls to start laying. I am looking forward to the 1st egg from my other girls. Very egg-citing for me as I am sure for Bridget.

    Thanks mgw & b.hromada. I was very excited that it finally arrived as Bridget had been in and out of the nest box all weekend and moving the easter egg around. She decided to wait till I went to work for the big moment. She knows how I like to video and take photos of the girls! I am a proud Mama Hen [​IMG]
