    We are the proud watchers of 7(originally 8) brown egg layers. They are 21 weeks old and we got our first egg on 8/8. On the same day we got 4 new chicks which brings the total to 11. We enjoy them a great deal and have stolen a lot of our tips, guidance, etc from here prior to registering. 2 NH Reds, 2 Black Australorps, 2 GL wyandottes, and 1 Buff Orpington. A hawk took that number from 2 to 1. We have her replacement in the brooder now along with 2 Buff Laced Polish and a White Leghorn that was the Meyer Meal Maker when we placed our last order. Our NHR was the first to lay and laid Monday and Today. Very exciting. The first egg was collected, blown out and resides on my wife's nightstand. It was exciting for the previous city girl. More good times yet to come. Thanks for the site, the information and the contributions that have helped us along the way!
