So, my EE's and bantams are all now 14 weeks old...and it is starting to feel like time has sloooooowwweeddd down in waiting for that first egg! Looking back, the last 14 weeks have flown by! But now the days are dragging! Who else is on the never ending countdown until their first egg? THIS IS AWFUL!!! I told myself not to count on any eggs until September when I got them back in April, now I just want to wake up in September! I keep seeing all the first egg posts and I have to admit I am feeling the envy a little! I would take a tiny little bantam egg and cheerfully make the smallest omelet ever any day just to say I got one! I think once the roos start crowing and there are no eggs a-coming....that is the worst part! Like the boys are out there teasing and laughing! Who else is not-so-patiently waiting for eggs? SOOOOOO AFTER MUCH WAITING! AND PRAYING! AND THREATS OF FREEZER CAMP! WE FINALLY GOT AN EGG YESTERDAY!!!! IT WOULD BE THE FIRST DAY I WORK IN OVER TWO WEEKS!!! I MISSED IT BEING LAYED! BUT.....I CAME HOME TO FIND THE MOST TINIEST PERFECT EGG IN A NEST BOX!!!!! I SPENT ALL NIGHT TEXTING AND CALLING AND DRIVING AROUND WITH IT AND HOLDING IT FOR HOURS!!! NOW...I FINALLY POST IT HERE (ALONG WITH PICS OF WHO I THINK DID IT) IT IS JUST SO FREAKING AWESOME!!!! LOOK LOOK LOOK LOOK !!!! LOOK WHAT MY CHICKENS MADE! Next to my house keys for comparison - it is size double extra tiny! With a shiny new quarter... In a box of store bought "large" eggs - it's the little cream colored one in the middle. It even has speckles a little bit (I checked, not poo - SPECKLES) I think she did it! She has always been the gentlest hen, loves to sit on my shoulder, the first one to greet me when I go to the coop/run. Anyone think it wasn't her though? I don't know what kind of eggs she would lay...but this one is creamy colored with some very light speckles...AND OH SO TINY!!!! We celebrated with pizza and beer last night! I almost bought cigars even! It's great to be a mama! (Oh, and I might have done this wrong and not to protocol...but since I had started this thread FOREVER ago I figured I would finish it!
