    I got my very first egg this morning! I suspect it is from one of my Barred Rocks, as my White Rocks don't seem to be quite as developed. They are almost 21 weeks now.

    I'm extremely proud of my tiny little egg :) Does this mean she should start laying regularly?

    I'd expect so...each of my birds have laid quite regularly after their first egg. My RIR and White Leghorn each lay six or seven eggs a week, and my EE normally produces five.

    Congrats on the egg, it's a great feeling to find the first one!

    Yay! Congrats! My girls have been laying regularly ever since their 1st egg. I usually get 4-6 eggs per girls per week, though I don't have any Plymouth Rocks (yet... Got some whites coming in the spring!)

    When all of my hens started laying some would lay the next day after their first egg and others wouldn't. I think it just depends on the hen. The first day my (deceased) Ameraucana layed an egg, it was a double yolker and very torpedo shaped. [​IMG]Congrats on your first egg!! [​IMG]
