    This our very first egg! What a joy to finally see this in the nesting box last Friday.[​IMG]

    And the best part is that it turned out to be a double yolk!!:D

    Congrats on your first egg! And that was one ambitious pullet to start with a double. May she lay many more eggs for you!

    I feel the same way! Trying to figure who layed it is the real mystery. We got 9 eggs in 6 days! I don't think they are all laying either. 1 has a very small, pinkish-tinted comb and the others comb is only half the size and color as the 3 that I think are laying. I guess time will tell. Thanks for the reply!:)
