    What a surprise!!! Had been watching the older chickens(4 21 week RIR) waiting for them to lay in a month or so and the younger chicks (2 18 week golden comets?) have beaten them to the punch! Daughter found 3 itty bitty eggs under one who was making a racket in the coop (where these chicks never go - long story still trying to get them to sleep in there at night) and another itty bitty egg in another nesting box. How exciting! now do i call hubby at work to tell him or surprise him when he gets home?

    Picture is one RIR egg from our friend's chickens and our first 4 eggs- there is one that is almost as big as the regular RIR egg
