    Congrats! [​IMG] I remember when we got our first egg: our Wyandotte hen screamed for about two weeks before she laid it! [​IMG] She doesn't create such a fuss anymore, but occasionally she'll express her displeasure.

    We humans are so easy to please. Like you, the first egg had me bursting with happiness. It has been nearly 3 months since the first one and I'm still tickled each time I see an egg waiting for me.

    Congrats!

    Congrats on the first eggs! I was quite surprised when my BR hen laid her first egg, she was quite quiet and I wasn't expecting anything for a few more weeks. The staff at the local feed mill said she was an early layer and I was lucky!
