    My girls are 18 week old RIR's. Today I found my first egg in the nesting box. It was pretty small, but i'm sure they will get bigger.
    It put a great big smile on my face.

    Congratulations! Did you notice any changes in behavior over the past few days? Did you have any indication that the first egg was coming?
