    Our girls are just a couple days shy of 20 weeks old and we got our first egg today! [​IMG]

    We have one (RIR named Chico) who has been squatting for several weeks. Over the last week three more have started so we should see more eggs soon. My kids were so excited!

    Congrats!! I have 1 out of 5 who is laying so we get 1 egg a day. The kids love it when we have enough for omelet night!! The others have been doing the egg squat for a few weeks so hopefully soon we will be getting more eggs!
