I finally got my first egg, my black stars are 24 weeks old today and when I went to open the coop to let them out there was one sitting in a nest box. Everyone else jumped out but her, so I quickly shut the door and crossed my fingers. A few minutes later I heard her thumping at the door to come out. Opened the door, and TADA!!! I have an egg! I have two flocks one group is 20 weeks and one is 24 weeks old and I was beginning to think it was never going to happen. I let them free range all day long, make them hot mash on those cold mornings, bring them treats, oyster shells, you name it. I was like can life be any better for you? Do you want cash or what?! But all my efforts were rewarded, its a perfect egg and I gotta tell you it wasn't as small as I thought a pullet egg would be. It wasn't a bad size at all. My kids were so excited, I am glad that it happend on a weekend when they could be home. I also have some BBS eggs in the bator from Miss. Prissy and today is day 21 and I am impatiently awaiting a pip. I candled them all and they looked great, but maybe they are napping, since not a pip yet. Today would be a great day if those hatched on the same day I got my first egg wouldn't it.?!
