Finally, my first egg! This morning, I noticed that someone had been in the nest box this morning. I spent some more time in the coop, and noticed something was up. So, I decided to stay and see would happen. I got to watch my 27-week Barred Rock pullet, Liz, lay her first egg (my first egg, too). It took her about an hour from the time she was seriously interested in being in the nest box, until the egg came out and things settled down in the coop. Brown with white speckles, medium-sized egg, 1.9 oz, 2 5/16" long.

She and my RIR are 28 weeks old now. Liz and Sam, my 2 BR, are both 27 weeks. Here's an 8 minute movie of the first egg, including the laying moment. Thanks to all of you, I knew what was happening!
