    I didn't see who did it but I'm pretty sure it's courtesy of our lovely BO Miss Jody---she's been squatting for a while and all of a sudden her comb and wattles have gotten very plump and red.
    She also was three fingers on the pelvic bone check this week.
    Did it in the nest box too---good girl!!!
    Such a pretty egg!

    I'm still impatiently waiting for my first from my lazy 25 weekers, wah! Trying hard not to be jealous, but that egg is so pretty! How old is she?

    She is about 22 weeks old. What kind of chickens do you have?
    I wasn't getting my hopes up too much because I had heard so much about shell-less first eggs and that kind of stuff.
    But it's so pretty.
    Of course, I am a bit biased. :love

    Hahaha, that's like every emoji, lol!!!! That's totally how I would be! My oldest girls are 3 Silkies, a Millie Fleur D'Uccles, and a bantam Cochin. The MFD and Cochin are nice and red and plump, but no eggs! I have 3 Cemanis that are about 22 weeks, still no eggs...

    There are a few of us waiting with you.

    It's a wonderful thing, I'm an old man and I got excited too. I had 4 fresh eggs for breakfast this morning.
