    [​IMG]I got my very first egg on Saturday from Ester, my 6mo. old barred rock. She laid a second one on Sunday morning. Here are some pictures. I am so so so excited!!!

    Here is a picture of her egg in the nest box. The one on the left and the middle are fake ceramic eggs I put in the nest box to show my girls where to lay. The one on the right is Ester's egg.

    Here is a picture of Ester's egg, on the bottom, compared to a store bought grade A large egg.

    Wow-- since laying her first egg on Saturday Ester has laid an egg a day. Even though its not the first, its still so exciting to open up that nest box and find an egg.
