Hello all!! Back in april we got 2 buff orps, 4 australorps and 2 barred rocks (one nicknamed Mary Poppins cause she always flies to my shoulder when I get into the coop). We got some much education from this website (thanks so much everybody!). Today was a special day. After hearing the egg laying song for a couple of week, and one of them squatting for a few days, we got our first egg! It look so clean and cool! As a matter of fact, I first thought it was one of the ceramic eggs we got there for training - it was that perfect! Only when I tapped it on the wood I realized it was our very first egg! Its amazing how our babies grown up. We ate it. So delicious!
