    My first egg came today without fanfair. 20 weeks and 2 days. Only one seemed ready and after I showed her the nesting box, she proceded to give me a nice sized brown egg. She's a RIR. Hopefully there will be more soon. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Yes the first is always the most expensive. After that they are all free! Or at least that is what I tell myself. [​IMG]

    You got off cheap! I think my first egg will cost close to $2000! [​IMG] That number is totally due to chicken math!

    Quote:Yeah, seriously. When I read $400, I thought the OP was spreading the cost among a clutch of eggs.

    Congrats on your first egg. Many more to follow!
