    I was so excited when we got our first egg about 2 weeks ago (hens were only 15.3 weeks old) and got to have that same feeling yesterday when I found a green egg from one of our Americanas on the ground in the chicken run. Think I will just blow it out and add to the collection of six eggs that I blowout to keep as trophies from this first round of excitement. Now I'm waiting for a white egg from the Brown Leghorns. Getting about 2-3 eggs per day now from our 10 hens [​IMG]

    If she's like mine, you won't have long to wait for the second green egg to actually eat. They seem to be very proficient layers. Congrats![​IMG]
