    Today, one of my Austrolorp hens laid an egg! A pretty little brown one, and boy is it cute! [​IMG]

    My family and I are absolutely happy! [​IMG] Maybe a bit too much. [​IMG] We were afraid that our hens would be laying late this year, because they might've been stressed from the heat over the summer.

    My little Brother with the egg. [​IMG] He was so happy! Also, on his thumb, that's marker. [​IMG] He likes to get messy with them.

    Oh, CONGRATS!!!

    It's so exciting, isn't it? I squealed for joy when we got our first egg. You would have thought I laid it myself.
