    Yesterday one of my 5 month old speckled sussex laid her first egg!!!! Then just now my 6 month old Blue Wyandotte laid her first egg!!!!! Yay!!! My husband asked me why I was so excited since I've got eggs running out of my ears from my laying flock. Now he really thinks I'm nuts.

    Now I can start looking ahead to expanding on my wyandotte numbers. They were as hard to hatch as shipped eggs as my blue orps!!

    That's wonderful, Kitty! I cant wait till my current almost-to-laying-age group gets started. The oldest one of them is my EE, June, and then the rest are 18 and 17 weeks old. There are about 18 of them, so soon, I'll be overrun with cute little pullet eggs.

    Congratulations!!!! That is so awesome. My husband doesn't understand either. After I got home from the auction he wouldn't speak to me all night just because I happened to come home with a very small mottled chick. [​IMG]

    I wasn't. In fact I was in line to pay for my bales of straw (2.80 ea is that a good price?) and the guy who purchased the lot of 12 chicks was in front of me. Anyway I had looked at them and she had caught my eye, but I was not buying. Well I paid .75 for her, and she broke one of my broodies.

    She is such a cutie too.
