    [​IMG] Yay for you!!! Those first eggs are ridiculously thrilling, aren't they??? Most folks (who don't keep chickens) would think us crazy with how excited we get...lol. It's been three years since I was in your shoes, and I still remember the feeling [​IMG]

    The first egg ever is most exciting. However, I've found it is also exciting to get the first egg from each pullet.

    Congratulations!

    My Dominique girl's first egg was in the nest where it belongs too and it was a perfect little brown egg.

    I still get excited about every egg I find! Ok, not AS excited as the first ones, but I'm amazed and grateful for every one, every time.

    [​IMG]Congrats on all the new eggs! I still get thrilled everyday when I gather eggs.I agree, chickens are amazing creatures. I was raised in the city up north so I am new to the whole chicken thing. I love them and noone will be able to take them away from me! I am even more amazed when my little bitty banty eggs hatch! I just can't fathom how a tiny little chick the size of my thumb grows and comes out of such tiny eggs. They are so cool!
