    It's probably from our Barnevelder, Beatrice.

    Congratulations! Getting that first egg is so exciting! Beatrice deserves lots of treats as a reward, :) let's hope the other hens follow suit.

    She's being pretty productive so far! We got another egg yesterday and today, and today's was even in the nesting box instead of just in the corner of the coop.

    Congratulations! That "I got my first egg" experience is extremely eggciting! I'm sure many others would agree. [​IMG] I know I was. I felt proud, for some reason. I don't know why. I didn't lay it.

    First one for our small flock, Mildred was having a hard time finding a good place to lay her egg, she settled on a large plastic tub filled with kitty litter.

    Congrats! It is sooo egg-citing, even now, when I've been getting eggs for a long time. Enjoy your girls and those delicious eggs. [​IMG]

    Now Mildred has found a cozy spot in the laying boxes woo who! Also 2 other hens in the real laying box, & one likes a small hen house I put in the barn for safe keeping.
