That first egg can seem to take forever but it's so exciting when it comes! Don't forget to take a picture of it

I have 3x 18 week (on Monday) hens (barred rock, buff orp, and EE) and 3x 21 week hens (light brahma, welsummer, and cuckoo marans). I am "patiently" awaiting my first egg...

Adw11 your birds look great!

Good luck to all of you waiting for your first egg!

I have 2 blue laced red Wyandottes, 2 olive eggers, 1 blue copper maran & 1 crested cream legbar. All 22 weeks old, suddenly big red combs but no eggs yet. The hubby and I have a bet going on the date we get our first egg. Whoever is closest gets to eat it ;)
