    Finally at 28 weeks my blue bady Doodle layed her first egg. It was pretty good size for a first egg here it is on the right next to my orpington pullet egg.

    wow, that is one good looking first egg! My first cochin egg was long and skinny. I think if I threaded it I could have used it for a needle. LOL
