    I found our first egg this morning! It is a little brown egg and I am not sure who laid it. I think it could be one of my BA's, but, they are only 17 weeks old. Is it typical for BA's to lay this young? I thought my Leghorn would be the first since she is 19 weeks old. But now I am beginning to wonder if she really is a Leghorn. I think she could be a Delaware because she has black in her tail feathers and black on her neck. I guess I will have to wait and see if I get white eggs to find out.

    Here is a picture of the Leghorn? Delaware? in question and here is a picture of the roo I got with her at 1 week old that was also supposed to be a pullet.
