    Got home from work pretty late last night and decided I would check for an egg... Good thing I checked as I found my first egg ever!!!! Not sure who laid it, but it certainly was delicious!! my BR and light brahma have been squatting but my welsummer has decent sized comb and wattles as well (but no squatting yet).

    Congratulations on your first egg! :clap

    It's always so exciting when you find those little treasures in the nest box! Never gets boring collecting them!
    It looks very tasty sitting there in your pan :drool

    Congrats! I remember when our hen had her first egg... My brother sat there for what seemed like hours recording her. After a long while she finally layed an egg a few seconds after my brother left the room. I don't think she wanted us to record her laying the egg. :lau
