    I got my first ever egg. it was from my 16 week old black australorp. All my chickens are the same age. I got them all at the same time as day old chicks.
    I was surprised I thought I still had 1-2 months to go. All that work finally about to pay off.

    Great pic... and so wonderful that you have an 'early' layer.

    My first egg didn't come until 20 weeks to the day.

    I got my first double yolker yesterday and it became a double dippy fried egg this morning with toast.

    My pullets were hatched Sept 26th and I got my first egg three weeks ago - they've been laying 1-3 eggs every couple of days - today was a big surprise with FIVE! [​IMG]

    I love my girls [​IMG]

    16 weeks? Thats great. I have two australorp hens, and I am looking forward to getting eggs. They are only 3 weeks old, so it will be awhile, but I hope mine are early as well

    I'm gonna eat it first thing in the morning. I guess it's time now to put the golf balls in the nest boxes.

    I blew my first egg out. I still have it from my first chickens I got 2 years ago. I also got my first blue egg a couple of weeks ago and blew it out.
