    Hey Y'all!! I'm new (long term lurker) but I joined because.... I got my first egg today!!!
    Not sure who laid it but I suspect my naked neck because she's been hunching down a lot lately for about 2 weeks. I also have 2 Wellsummer & 2 Speckled Sussex.

    I look forward to being able to participate in convos now that I finally joined!!!

    You will be able to tell also, if you check the width of there pelvic bones and see if their vent is stretched out.

    Thank you everyone!!! I just picked up egg number 2!!! Now I'm trying to find some info in the forums about whether it's best to keep them in the fridge or out and what the time length is for freshness...
