    Quite the surprise this morning when I looked in the coop. I had been led to believe my two Black Star pullets were 3-4 months old, but I guess that was a rough guess because here was what I found:

    Just a little thing, but not too small, and definitely in fine shape. I don't have a better picture though, because the next thing I knew my wife was asking if I wanted a bite of the egg and cheese biscuit she had made! Lol! She even baked a single biscuit just for the occasion.

    Tasted mighty fine!

    Oh, and if you followed my other thread concerning noise, I have no idea when they laid it, because we were gone much of the day yesterday, and I never thought to look for an egg.

    i'll be listening closer now! :)

    Cool, huh?
    You know the sex-links are known as egg-laying machines. Get ready for plenty of eggs 'n' biscuits [​IMG]

    Congrats on the egg [​IMG] I am still waiting on my white rock to start laying her comb and wattles have been red a month so far. I hope I don't have to wait much longer. [​IMG]
