    After 20 weeks finally got my first egg. Don't know who laid it. Was out most of the day and when I returned i checked on my chicks and found first egg in dirt hole in run. No one came forward to claim it. Its a beige color. I have all brown egg layers except for one lone EE pullet.
    Its small about 1" wide and 2" long. Can't wait for more......
