    At 21 weeks and 1 day, we got our first egg from my Red Sex link, Zelda. [​IMG]

    That little girl bawk'd her head off until all 32 chicks and 3 humans came running to see what she had done.

    Now maybe the rest of them will follow her example.

    I just got my first on Tuesday. Then another chicken started to lay yesterday, and today I got 2 (TWO!) eggs! Mine are 24 weeks today. Yipee for us!!! [​IMG]

    And GaNewChick, here's hoping your hens get to work on some eggs pronto!

    What gives mine are 30 weeks and not one blooming egg. [​IMG] Today I had DD go get the plastic Easter eggs...she thought I had officially lost my mind, then laughed at me when I put them in the nest boxes! She said Blanch would like the pink one [​IMG] I love 7 year olds!
