    We have had our 6 girls for 5 and a half weeks now, and last week we had our first egg, exactly 4 weeks after getting them. Quite small eggs to start with, but they are gradually getting normal size (had a HUGE one yesterday, felt sorry for the poor bird who laid it, whoever it was). We have had a few soft shell ones, but they all seem to be settling down now, and we had 6 eggs yesterday for the first time. I'm well proud of them. And the eggs are delicious!
