    Finally!!!! After two months (got 6 of them October 21st), I got my first 2 eggs today! I'm so excited!

    I usually go down every day and feed, water, etc. but I was so wrapped up (pardon the pun) in Christmas details, my husband did it for me today. Late this afternoon I said something about them and he said, "Oh, by the way, one of the chickens was in a nesting box when I went down this morning." That is the FIRST TIME in 2 months that either of us has seen one actually in a nesting box! I got so excited I decided to go down to the barn right then and, sure enough, there were two eggs! What an exciting Christmas present!!! [​IMG]

    Merry Christmas Everyone!

    Hi,

    This morning I went out to my hen house and to my surprise there was a my first newly hatched warm egg and on Christmas Eve to boot. A couple of hours later there was another.

    When I bought my day old chicks back in early August, we said that they should start laying around Christmas time. Great timing I'd say.

    Merry Christmas to all!
