I am so excited about my 1st egg! I found it on Friday! It was right in the nestbox just like it is suppose to be! Yesterday I got 1 egg too! I have 16 hens and about half of them are close to laying ages. I have a good idea of who is laying them, but can't remember the type of hen she is. She is just a large plain black hen. She is suppose to have brown eggs and her egg is not exactually white. It is very small, but I just assummed is was cause she was new at this. I believe she is suppose to have normal sized eggs. I do have alot of bantam hens and I know their eggs will be smaller. Well, I am very thrilled with my chicken and their new trick--haha! We used the cute new egg in our cornbread the other night and it was sooooo yummy!

Great isn't it? I got my first one last Sunday. Have 14 the same age but only one laying. We figure with housing, fencing, cost of birds and food the 7 eggs cost us about 200.00 dollars each. But the cost goes down with each egg.

I still get excited with EVERY egg. For a while my fiance was getting them before I came home, and then I whined on this board and now he waits and lets me get them.
He is a sweetie.

Awesome!

We got two today.. that's 10 in 9 days now. But only 5 of the 18 have laid an egg. Very expensive eggs still at this point.
