    I'm very proud to announce that after seven weeks of waiting patiently with my new flock, I've got my first egg! The even cooler part is, I think it came from one of my mixed red pullets-- her first egg ever! :D

    It's a lovely light brown, hard shell, normal "medium" egg shape... A great first egg!! :)

    Congrats! I've been collecting eggs since mid Sept. and still get so excited walking into the coop to find an egg. The excitement got even worse (?) when my ducks started laying! [​IMG]
     
  5. IN a few months, you'll be struggling to keep up with the output of eggs.
