First Eggs

Discussion in 'Managing Your Flock' started by chickenwhisperer, Sep 12, 2007.

  1. So my barred rock hen started laying on monday, and has laid an egg every day since, each day a little bigger. The first one was small, brown , and had a good shell and yolk. I ate the first two already, and will use todays for dinner.
    Awesome, just when I thought it would never happen.
    Now just gotta wait for my EE and my mutt to lay.
    PS- I shouldve posted in the egglaying forum, how do I move this?

    Congrat's on your eggs. My barred rocks were first to lay too and my EE was second. I'm still waiting for one of my EE's to lay and she is 26 weeks now. Don't know what's taking her so long when everyone else was laying at 21 & 22 weeks. Good luck!
