I really couldn't wait for my pullets to get with the program. This weekend I bought the hen you see below and today she actually laid the egg while I watched. It didn't help that I had the coop closed off for cleaning. She probably would have used a nest box, given the timing. I wish I had taken a video, but I really didn't know what was wrong with her until she popped it out. Now I can only take a picture of an empty shell because I used this egg to show my wife what a HUGE difference there is between what we will be eating and what is bought at the grocery.

Cogrtulations she looks just like 3 of my girls.
My other one has more red on her, but I believe in the USA they are called Black Sex-links, my girls lay every day like clockwork and I could not be more pleased with them.

It is such a good feeling. Good for you...

Jena.

Our first egg was from our Black Sex link pullet too! Layed Sept. 12th, 2008, exactly 20 weeks from the day that she was hatched at McMurray.

Here it is:

And here she is:

And if you keep her healthy, she'll give you 4 or 5 eggs every week.
