    We got our first egg today . . . I found it while cleaning out the coop, right before my son stepped off the bus . . . it was like Christmas morning!

    Aw, lucky! I'm getting excited for my pullets to start laying. One of them looks to be pretty darn close so I keep checking.

    Awesome little egg! [​IMG] Hoping my BAs start soon too! My RIRs have been laying for about a month and my buffs are just starting. The BA's and EE's are squatting lie crazy so it's got to be soon! (maybe my ba's are laying - I just don't catch them in the act??) They are all goin on 22 weeks ( btw...East of Appleton here). How old is your BA??
