    I've been collecting eggs for over eight years, and it's still a marvel to discover one in a nest box.

    Congrats on your first egg! Here's to many, many more!

    I would go nuts if I had to wait that long. Now I am wondering if I have one hen laying or if 2 of the girls are finally working. The only one who looks completely ready is Gloria (my Barred rock) but she is only 17.5 weeks old and the other girls are different breeds and a week older so really unsure here.
