    One of my EE surprised me with an egg today! All my girls will be 16wks tomorrow.

    I can't stop smiling! This is my first experience with chickens. I am thrilled to have an egg so early.

    I have 3 EE, 3 RS, 3 BO, & 3 AL. I thought my Red Stars would lay first. The EE that gave me the egg is a little thing. The egg is decent sized for a first egg too. So proud! I'll try to addicts later.

    Wow! Congratulations on the first egg! 16 weeks is really early! My Easter Egger started laying at about five and one-half months of age, so yours is an early bloomer!

    I hope you get many more beautiful eggs from your hens!

    I ate the little egg for breakfast. It was wonderful. Fresh and rich, just small. Can't wait for more!
