    Ok, I know all you pros are sick of seeing this topic posted, BUT I GOT MY FIRST EGG!!!! Perfect little pullet egg. Not sure who laid it, but I am thrilled! My impatience has finally paid off! :eek: RIR, Buff Orp & Black Star are 22.5 weeks old. If I can find the patience, I will try to post a photo in the first egg thread!!

    Isn't it wonderful. I still feel like a 5 year old on Christmas morning everytime I find eggs in the nest. [​IMG]

    Congrats! My little female duck laid her first egg about a month ago, Ended up laying 18, sadly , only one hatched, but this little duckling is such a joy! At 3 weeks old, she is spending her first night outside [​IMG] But Mama has already laid eight more eggs, lol.
    Again, CONGRATS! I know it is just such an awesome feeling when you see it/ feel it.

    YAYS! Isn't it exciting? I got my first blue EE this week. I think one of the 4 EE's lays pinkish eggs, they look brown till you put it right next to a brown egg, then it looks lavender/pinkish! Enjoy your fresy tasty non-anemic eggs!! J
