    We got our first egg from one of our pullets today!! I don't know which one laid it out of my 17 week old barred rock with bright red wattles or one of our 20 week old RIR's or Australops or white rock. Doesn't matter it's our first pullet egg. I have been getting eggs from one of our mature hens I bought on craigs list, but this is alot better!! [​IMG] [​IMG] Will post pic later!! Wooo Hooooo !
