    I feel like a bad mom....but, when I went to lock the girls up for the night I found 2 eggs! One was fairly freshly broken open and both were cold. The unbroken one was buried in the sawdust!

    I did rinse off the unbroken egg and weighed it (1.3 ounces) before putting it in the fridge. I think it's safe to eat still...

    It wasn't broken too badly, we still ate it, and it tasted great!

    I got my first egg from my little girls today...
    [​IMG]
    It's the bottom egg in this pic, it was tiny compared to the other ones. The top one is from my 9 month old BO and the the middle one is from my 9 month old PR.

    It was from one of my barred rocks, Patti. Here she is:

    Sunny my white EE laid her first yesterday. So now 2 of the 9 are laying. It looks exactly like the picture of the first egg we got. There's been alot of interest in the nest box by several of the ladies so I figure they will all be laying in the next week or so.
     

  8. I got my first egg today!!!!! My australorp girls are 21 weeks old today!! It weighed 1.6 ounces. My day so far had gone from bad to worse until I went and checked the nest late this afternoon. Now I am happy!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I just went outside to see what all the racket in the yard was, and spotted Johnny coming down the ramp. Sure enough......

    Congrats. Looks like you have a golden Comet there. She looks like ours, of which only one has started to lay at 17 weeks. Should see the others go into production in a week or so.
