    Needless to say, LOTS of excitement around here! Especially since the first egg was laid on Thursday, the second egg on Friday, and the third egg today! They all came from my Easter Egger Gisele, who is about 29 weeks old. So far all the eggs have been found in random places... she hasn't quite figured out how to use the egg box yet, but she is on a roll! They are small, beautiful, green-tinted Easter eggs. Do eggs get bigger as the chickens get bigger?

    Now I just need to convince my other two ladies to start laying too!

    Congrats!! It's so much fun :D I think your chickens eggs will vary in size a bit until they really get into the swing of things. We had a lot of double yolkers for a while, some with hardly any shell, but now they're pretty uniform. And tasty :)

    Thank you! I think I'll dip my first egg in gold leaf to put on display... sort of like how restaurants frame their first dollar. [​IMG]
