    Well today was the day and I wasn't even expecting it.

    - We have 6 beautiful Buff Orpingtons in our backyard coop.
    The little ladies are somewhere around 25 week old.
    Here they are a couple weeks ago.

    I got home from teaching tonight and noticed my daughter had not been out to clean the coop yet. So as im walking in from the garage I opened up the door and to my surprise there were four little gifts waiting for me.

    Two of them were incomplete, one looked like just yoke and not in a sack or anything, the other was like a floppy little sack egg but had broken.
    Two of them were KEEPERS!

    Were excited to have our first little eggs.....
