    Congrads on the new eggs! I just got my first one as well about 45 minutes ago!! I heard all this commotion and ran out there to do a preditor check and had a little brown egg from my Austalorp. Here is my question: Why was she picking aggressively at the egg? She was standing over it and pecking at it with conviction. I have to pull these as they were recently wormed but Im excited to see an egg,just wondering what the pecking on it is all about.

    well my girl is about six months. i knew she would be laying anytime because she had turned really red in the face and did the submissive wings down sit thing when i went to pick her up for the past week. oh i also got another one from her today yay! i dont know why she would be pecking prolly just trying to figure it out i would take it away as soon as possible and she will eventually get over the newness. i got lucky and have two older hens that i bought already laying so she knew exactly where to lay since there were other eggs already in there
