    I waited 9 months for this beautiful Green egg! Here's hoping her 2 sisters start laying theirs soon.

    I wanted to know which girl it was out of the 3. I bent down and asked the girls who laid this one. And sweet Veronica hunkered down for the first time, I knew it was her picked her up and gave her a hug telling what a good girl she was. Here's hoping Betty & Shakira start laying soon too.

    Congrats!!!!
    Our Easter Egger, Henrietta, finally laid her first egg this past Saturday. She looks a bit like your gal and is 7 months old! With very little comb growth compared to the other 2 gals we have who are the same age, we were surprised. Henrietta had started squatting, but I thought she was just doing what the other girls did!
    Pretty green egg- like yours!
    So exciting when they start laying!
    congrats again!

    I was thinking mine were waiting for spring too. She didn't lay one today but she just started so I'm sure it will be sporadic. It's starting to get cold again so that won't help.
