    Congratulations on your first egg! Exciting isn't it, and a pretty little egg it is. Now you get to decide what you will do with it.

    Do you know how long it takes usually to get the second egg no eggs yet today. We fried it by the way!

    Fresh eggs for breakfast, easy to get used to that! How fast the second egg shows up varies. 20 weeks is a little early to start laying so the next one may take a little time, but in general with the more productive layer breeds like RIR, I expect another one within two or three days, some will lay one the next day, some will take a week, but usually within a couple of days... of course the girls do what they want to do.
