    Congratulations on those eggs :clap
    It's always so exciting to find those first ones! When I got my first ever polish egg I was running around with it like I had found treasure :lol:
    Hope you have many more in the future :highfive:

    I have 6, 5-month old hens, mixed flock, and so far 2 of them started laying just this week. So exciting! Congrats on yours.

    After two weeks, at least 2 others (we've actually seen them in the laying boxes) have started laying. We have a lovely rainbow of eggs.[​IMG]
