    Geesh, seems like we ahve been waiting for ever! Its good sized for a first egg, but kinda pale for brown egg layers but hay, it can't be perfect the first time right? lol Now hopefully the rest of the girls kick it up a notch and start too!

    We have no clue who it was,lol. We have RIR, Buff Orps, and Black Austerlorps. The kids are going crazy, they want to keep going out to check for more,lol. They hatched out April 21, give or take a day, so theyare about 20 weeks old or pretty close any way. Chicken math is already kicking in at our house too, my oldest is wanting some bantys for 4H, as soon as we get a set up ready we will try to get the chicks and since we will be getting chicks any way, I want to get a few more to add to my flock,lol! We also have a pair of ducks and my daughter wants some of them for 4H also. My husband isn't too keen on having to build more but we will talk him into it!
