Sunshine has been showing signs that she would be laying soon for a few days now. And today was the day! I came home to the news that Sunshine had been in her coop making nests and hopping in and out of her nest all day. I went to check and saw nothing but a new nest. But! I looked closer and saw the tip of an egg pointing out of the pine shavings! At last! Sunshine's first egg! - It was fairly big to my untrained eye, bigger than I expected at least. I couldn't believe my baby Sunshine layed an egg, and here it is! Compared to a Cherry Tomato Compared to a full-sized white egg It is not declared that on October 1, 2014 the 22 week old Delaware hen, Sunshine, layed her first egg! We're so proud! And she is too!
