    Yup, My first egg, my girls are Buff Orpingtons 32 weeks old today! It's perfectly shaped, nice and clean, right in the nest, just on the small size. Now I am finally part of the egg club..LOL
    So now does anyone eat their first small egg?

    My rir's blessed me this morning also with my first eggs but I gave mine to my friend who is very ill, I thought she might like that since she will not be with us to enjoy many more, They lay small eggs at first and they will get bigger over time.
    I made a lovely nesting box and they didn't use it, go figure,

    I got my first eggs yesterday too, what an excellent omen for the year to come. Now i just gotta step up my coop production, cause i can't keep going into the neighbors yard to fetch my eggs.
