    Came home for lunch and one of my barred rocks laid our FIRST EVER EGG!!! So cool! My wife, little girl and I took pictures and enjoyed the moment on this Friday the 13th, no less. My hens are 164 days old today or 23 weeks old.

    Congrats! I have a barred rock pullet - but she's only 6 weeks old. So I have a long time to wait. Gorgeous egg you got today!
