    We got baby chicks in the spring of which all of them except one have been laying but finally at 40 weeks old she finally laid her first green egg!!!! [​IMG] My son, who has raised the hen is excited because he was tired of hearing us call her a "free loader", LOL. [​IMG]

    Yay! That's a great feeling - and even better if the egg is green!

    She was quite the free-loader wasn't she. The time has come for her to ante up!

    Quote:I agree! but my son is disappointed that there isn't another green egg today.
