    So one of our Rhode Island Reds laid her first egg out of our flock of 9. I'm so excited!! Little surprised though that it's a white egg? I thought they laid brown eggs?? I think it has a good shell, but it's small which I'm aware is normal. [​IMG]

    Two more are in the nesting box right now!! Their faces aren't as red as the one RIR but looks like they are very close to laying too!! [​IMG]
