    Congrats on the first egg. I know when we got our first egg it was the most amazing feeling in the world. One started and then two more started laying eggs. We await the fourth to start soon. Its amazing to see them give such lovely eggs. We have one carton filled and one being filled as we speak. So its a great feeling. Hope it all goes well for the little hens for ya.

    Thank you! I think that it was a 1 time thing because i cleaned out the coop and only found one and it was buried under a bunch of stuff..... but it was still amazing!!!!!!!
