    One of our ladies (Buckeyes) finally started to lay. We are on day four, egg four. So excited! We ate the first two with a thankful blessing and prayer of thanks. It seems she likes to lay just after 7am. [​IMG]

    Congratulations!! My girls are 15 weeks so they still have some maturing to do (even when I tell myself this I am still anxious to see when they will lay!) How old are your girls?

    We got them may 3,2015.
    A second and now a third is laying. We have 11 hens.
    My daughter found this one yesterday. Any thoughts on why it's so small?[​IMG]

    Not unusual with new layers to get a tiny one like that...it may or may not have a yolk.
    Takes up to a month or so for things to smooth out and get 'regular'......can take weeks, or months, for egg size to get up to a 'small', 'medium or 'large' size/weight.
