Well we got a nice suprise this morning. I checked around 10 this morning, and our most mature looking black Australorp, Blackbird, was sitting in the nest box. She got out, and low and behold, a beautiful little brown egg was sitting there, our (and her) first egg! She's 21 weeks, 2 days old today. She looks significantly more mature (bigger redder comb and wattles) than our other BA hatched the same day. She's the first of our 8 pullets to give us a late Christmas present! We're excited. P.S. It tasted yummy too!
