    I know there are lots of these posts but I had to share. I found our first egg today, right in one of the nest boxes! It was small but perfect! We have 6 BR and 6 BO.
    They are all 21 weeks old. I figured the time was near as the BR hens comb and wattles were getting very red and they started squatting about a week ago.
    It has been lots of fun so far seeing my chickens do all the neat things I read about on this site. I got them as day olds last October and it amazes me the things they know purely on instict, as they had no other chickens to learn from.
