    We are so excited!! It has been a VERY long wait but alas today we have a perfect little green beauty from our Americana Henrietta! The kids are beyond excited and want to keep seeing it.
    We are new to chickens so getting an egg feels like a huge accomplishment for us. Thanks to everyone that has answered my questions [​IMG]

    Congratulations!!! We got our first eggs last week (a total of 5 as of today). It's such a great feeling to find that first egg. I showed mine to everyone who would stand still long enough. [​IMG]
