    I was actually looking through the first egg thread while at work this afternoon, and called home to have the family check on the flock. Our girls where at 25 and 26 weeks yesterday and I knew it could/should be any day, low and behold, TODAY was day![​IMG] Although we are not sure who she was, we are just happy that the laying has begun!

    At first sight...

    Nothing as cool as finding that first egg. Yesterday my Naked Neck laid her first she is only about 21 weeks old. Yesterday wasnt sure which of the three they look like they are getting close but when I went to check water last night she was standing by the waterer and egg squated for me.
