    Our Buff Orpington laid her first egg yesterday - on her 6 month birthday!


    When I found it, I actually thought my family had pranked me, because it looked JUST like the store-bought eggs in the refrigerator!

    She didn't lay it in the nesting box, but on the counter right next to it, which is good enough for me. So proud of her!

    Here she is - isn't she a pretty girl?

    Congratulations! an extra treat for that hard working girl today. The first eggs are soooo exciting, so are the second, third, and so forth. I don't think the excitement ever wanes.

    Congratulations! I got my first egg last Saturday from my 6 mo. barred rock and know how exciting it is. Beautiful orph. From the pic she seems to have very deveoped combs and wattles. My orph is 6 mo. but still has virtually no comb.
    Congratulations again-- enjoy your first egg!
