    I found my first ever egg today. I was soooo excited[​IMG]It came from one of my 21 week old barred rocks. I was shocked! I figured it would be spring before I saw and egg. Now I'm excited to see eggs from the rest of my girls :)
     

  2. Yay! Those Barred rocks are awesome layers! You will soon be buried in eggs!

    I already have half a dozen co-workers offering to help with the extra eggs. Some of them are almost as excited as I am so I sure do hope I'm smothered in eggs :)
