    45 weeks? Wow, that's a long time.

    Hey, it looks like a beautiful egg, though, definitely worth waiting for![​IMG]

    Maybe your chicken is part of the "slow food" movement (sorry, couldn't resist!)
     
  3. What kind of chickens are they? 45 weeks is a looooooooong time. That's just a few weeks short of a year.

    Congrats, Lisa! I have one 45 week old pullet here who is acting very hormonal and her comb is bright red. Hopefully, it will be robins' egg blue like her sister. I love the first eggs!
