    The wait is over [​IMG] today one of the chickens had her first egg!! It was broken, but it was an egg. The shell seemed a little thin, the egg was kinda small, but it was an egg. So today I am gonna safeguard the nest box. I thought I had it secured well enough but it was on the floor this morning also, hence the broke egg [​IMG] . I think it was Onyx the PBR ....YooHoo you go Girl

    Congrates! My first egg was last week. I think she layed it off the roost and was in the same condition as yours lol. Broken thin mess on the floor. 2 days latter I found a half pint egg in the nestbox. Then the next day i got a nice big double yoker lol. Hang in there it only gets better.
