    Apparently all I had to do with ask a question about adding a neighbors laying hen to see if it would jump start mine and today I get my very own first egg!!!!!!!!!!! its so cute and little!

    My due date for my baby is on monday and for the past 2 mos I've been saying its going to be a race to see what comes first, the baby or the egg... the egg won! I am so excited!

    Ya know how you look in EVERY day and see nothing? and then one time you look and much to your surprise there is a real egg???? I was in shock!!!! I'm too excited!!

    I'm going to take pictures later when the 2y old is in bed... but its a little light brown egg.

    I have cinnamon queens and buff orpingtons... my guess is the buff because she's been acting "eggie" for weeks now [​IMG] but the cinnamon queen grew big wattles this past week so who knows!

    Thank you ALL!!!! [​IMG] I was just shocked to see it!!! I still can't believe it!

    So its really light brown... do you think that means its from my buff? a red sex-link lays brown too though, right?

    On the left, a brown store bought egg, on the right... the cute little egg from today,... awwww. I don't know if I'm ever going to want to eat it, I feel like I should frame it or something! LOL!

    I haven't had any chicken eggs yet, but I know just how you feel...I breed Budgies and Cockatiels, and it's always so exciting! I finally got eggs from my Lutino pair [​IMG]

    Come on chickens, your turn!
