My first eggs

    I got my first egg on Aug 28th. It was in the run up next to their house.
    The next day I got 2 eggs and they started using the nest box on their own!
    They took Sunday off, and it's been 2 eggs a day since then.
    These are coming from two of my Leghorn pullets.

    The brown eggs are from the store, to compare size.

    I still have two (a Leghorn and a RIR) who haven't started laying yet. They hatched on April 10th (best I can tell) so they're just shy of 5 months old.
    I wash my eggs right before I crack them. The ones from the nest box are nice and clean, but that first one was pretty dirty.
