    Very excited to have our first eggs from our girl Kentucky! Just waiting on the others to start producing now, lazy free loaders! She's laying late morning/early afternoon, is that normal?

    That's awesome! Congratulations on all your hard work raising them! First egg is a huge accomplishment! Isn't it so much more exciting then you imagined? Laying in the afternoon is completely normal, none of my girls even start getting in the nest till after eight or nine. They lay most of their eggs in the afternoon.

    Wow, those are huge for first lays! Are you sure you didn't get ostriches by mistake?

    I know! I noticed that too! I was wondering at first if she possibly had ducks instead of chickens. What kind of chicken do you have @Spinksy

    We have 5 Silver Laced Wyandottes [​IMG] And we got our first egg Tuesday! It was smaller than our other chicken's egg. We are excited to have them start after a tough summer!

    Nice! Yes, Productions Reds eggs can get quite large but start off fairly small in most cases. Sounds like you have a great flock and hopefully you'll be getting lots of eggs.
