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.

You got off cheap! I think my first egg will cost close to $2000!

That number is totally due to chicken math!

I swear it's not my fault. Started with four chicks, for $24, one chicken tractor at about $400 and then I wanted more! It's all the chickens fault!! They are just too cute to have only four, right??!!

I don't know if the eggs get any cheaper!!
Spent $40 yesterday on feed and wood shavings.
Out of the six girls at the moment only one is laying

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!
