    My 24 week and 5 days old Buff Orphington laid her first egg around 7pm tonight, I am so excited even though it is only 3" long it is perfect.

    So exciting!!! One of our 18 weekers laid an egg yesterday and today and then just a few mins ago I found the soft membrane of two more side by side under one of the hens. I'm assuming that's another one that's getting ready to lay???
