    Frieda, our 19 week old BR hen, just laid her first egg today (I was the lucky one to find it when checking on my chicklets after being gone for a 3-day working trip). Wow, we are totally happy and excited, and I'm enclosing pic's of my 6-year old, Noah, holding the egg, as well as Frieda, Queen of our flock (the other ones are a few weeks younger, and will hopefully follow her tracks real soon).

    Wow... looks like a great size egg. My hens are still so small at 21 weeks, I suppose it was because it was so hot this summer... our eggs are teeny pullet eggs so far. Got 3 today... most so far from our 18
