    Ok, I have hens that lay eggs. I've already had my first egg ever. More than a year ago. But I feel like I just got my first egg ever all over again! My lovely Sugar (yes, I'm very biased here lol) an Orpington pullet that is 9 months and 1 week old FINALLY LAID HER FIRST EGG today!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    And here she is, looking very satisfied with herself:

    The event triggered a celebratory oatmeal treat for everyone lol. They don't get treats all that much any more but I made an exception.
