    She laid her first egg this afternoon--- right in the middle of her run! It is really thin shelled and a little dented... but she just needs practice! I'm so happy!! HOORAY!

    This is Panyah... (bantam Sultan HEN!)

    Quote:I think she's about 7 months? I got her from Popson Farm about a month ago... I wasn't planning on getting a bigger chicken... I was just there for some silkies! But I ended up coming home with silkie chicks, a cochin chick and Panyah! (My MIL named her "Lady" in Polish haha). They said she was a fall baby and hadn't laid yet... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] So really, they did most of the work!
