    They are really pretty.

    I have one girl giving me eggs just like that right now. Cute little "beginner eggs". Every time I pick one from the nest I am amazed how perfect it is. It feels more solid than a store bought egg (hard to explain) and I love when I catch it still warm. Mmmm fresh!

    I know just what you mean! It seems so amazing that these perfect little eggs came from my chickens! Life is amazing.

    How exciting for you! I thought my brother was playing a practical joke on me. He had come over and was admiring his handiwork on the coop and found my first one! I accused him of trying to trick me with a fake egg.

    Arent they cute and tiny. At least mine was tiny. They get big quickly though.

    It is still a thrill everytime I go out and find eggs!

    I'm hating this waiting game. lol My girls will be 5 months old on the 12th, and are still pretty small looking. I'm sure I still have a little while before I get any first eggs. But the wait is horrible. It's like waiting for baby chicks to hatch. lol
     
  9. Quote:Lol try waiting for them to lay when they are pretty decent sized. I fed higher protein like a friend of mine did and my girls.are as big as some I have introduced that are fully grown. This is just frustrating.
