    I went out at 5am this morning to find a perfect little brown egg in my nesting box!! And then I came home to find ANOTHER egg, in almost the same spot! I only have five hens, and I can't believe that TWO started laying on the same day. Yay! It was so worth the wait.[​IMG]

    I do have pictures but I'm having trouble uploading them (I think it's my computer). Nice hard shells, a little rough but otherwise perfect.

    My ladies are about 24 weeks. It was a long wait, but not as long as some!
