    I know everyone is posting about first time eggs, but it's so very exciting!! 2 of my girls in the layer pen laid the very first eggs today. Whoopiiiiiii, I was happy. [​IMG] I went running in to the house shouting to dh "look what I got, look what I got" I want to mount them on the wall, but I guess we'll have eggs salad sandwiches instead.

    Congrats!!! [​IMG] I got my first eggs yesterday. I am wondering if everyone is all of a sudden getting their first eggs because a lot of people got their chicks at Easter time. Just a thought and kind of neat if that's what it is! [​IMG] Anyhow, that's very exciting! Congratulations once again! [​IMG]
