    [​IMG]I GOT MY FIRST EGG TODAY!!!!! [​IMG]I CAME HOME FROM WORK AND THERE IT WAS. I BET THE NEIGHBORS THINK I LAID ONE MYSELF WITH ALL THE NOISE I MADE. I'M PRETTY SURE WHO LAID IT. HER NAME IS FRIED AND SHE HAS BEEN PRETTY CRANKY, HENCE THE NAME, AND TODAY SHE IS SO QUIET AND CONTENT. SHE WAS GIVEN A WHOLE STRING CHEESE STICK TO HERSELF.[​IMG] SHE IS A RED SEX LINK AND 17 WEEKS OLD. I'M HOPING SHE WILL SHOW THE OTHERS WHAT TO DO NOW.

    I find the first laid egg to be as exciting as the first hatched egg! Congrats!

    Thanks everyone. I'm going to keep it a little while longer (until I get the second). Then I'm ready for a broody. I wasn't going to get a rooster until my 94 year old neighbor asked when they were going to start crowing, after I told her I have all girls, because I was afraid to upset anyone with a noisey roo, she says, "I was waiting to her a rooster, I love to hear them." My other neighbors said the same thing.[​IMG] Who knew.

    Second one today, but it was so soft that it was broken before I got to it. [​IMG]
    Now to wait for the third.
