    Thank you! I've been pretty anxious. I've had my girls since they were just a few days old and as soon as I knew they were old enough I was checking the boxes like a crazy woman. Then one day last week, I just decided that I could only look when I was putting feed out and BAM! [​IMG]

    Congrats. I just got my first egg yesterday. So today I was obsessed with checking ever 5 min to find out which hen layed. Lol. it was my RIR but my EE was the one that sang the "egg laying song". Silly chicken, trying to take credit for it. :D

    Oh, yes! The daily egg count will bring much joy to your days. Just remind yourself that five eggs a week is great from one hen. The way things cycle through you may actually have an eggless day (depending on how many hens you have).

    Congratulations on the first egg! That's always a reason to celebrate.:weee
