    My Barred Rock and Cuckoo Maran have both been showing signs that they were ready to lay (squating, etc)....and I got my first egg today! Shockingly, it was from neither. My first egg was from my Easter Egger!!!

    I got my first egg yesterday and it's the same color and size of yours. Nothing today. I'm saving till I have 4 so we can each have one. [​IMG] Let me know if you get one tomorrow.

    I love it! I got my first egg last week too. My Leghorn girl. She has been quite productive! She's 6 eggs for 7 days.

    Thanks so much for all of the "congrats"! I thought this day would never come...have been checking every morning before work for the past 3 weeks...nothing this morning. Went out to get the water from the coop so it doesn't freeze tonight and decided to look....was shocked that this was here! 25 weeks and 2 days....hopefully the other 6 start laying too!
