    One of my little Golden Buffs from Meyer Hatchery laid an egg today. She was hatched on July 21st so she is only 14 weeks 4 days old! [​IMG] It was not a little egg either. It is kind of speckled looking but I assume it will get more solid with time. Here is a pic of her up front left corner of pic...

    And this is her egg...the one alone in the center...

    Totally amazing. Her three sisters are all doing the egg squat too. My other girls are looking at them like they have lost their minds. [​IMG]

    An early bird hen! That is terrific. And her egg is so pretty, too.

    Lucky you. [​IMG]
