    Not sure who they are from, I have 2 RIR's and 2 BR's . The smaller one was from 8/20 and the bigger one was from today! I am so excited!!!![​IMG][​IMG] I think they are from my very aggressive RIR , but I don't know for sure. Whoever they came from works for me, I HAVE EGGS!!!![​IMG] [​IMG]

    Congrats! I can't know for sure but I think these are from your RIR's. I have both of these breeds- my BR eggs are a little lighter in color.

    Quote:Thanks you may have just saved a chickens life. The one RIR that I think may have layed these eggs has become very aggressive. She has attacked me several times, but now that she is or may be laying I may spare her from camp.

    Congratulations! It is so great to see people post their first egg experience. I just adopted 15 hens two weeks ago who are just about to turn 6 months. I can't wait for my first egg to come. It is awesome to know that others feel the same anticipation and excitement at getting their first egg. A lot of people outside the chicken world don't understand.
    I can't wait to post my first egg.
    I celebrate with you!!!

    hispoptart... I don't know for sure but it seems to me my new layers become cranky [​IMG] just prior to their first egg... and they do a lot of yacken [​IMG] too. [​IMG]
