Feels like we've been on egg watch forever around here! We have one hen, my Australorps Sheila, who is almost 2 MONTHS older than the rest of our chickens so we have been eagerly awaiting her first egg since she hit about 18 wks. 26 weeks came and went with NO EGG!!! This weekend she turned 27 weeks and today we finally found our first 2 eggs in the coop. Both are the same size and color, one was warm and one was cold, so I guess they could have been laid by the same hen...mebbe one last night and one this morning. I just have no idea who could have laid them since Sheila has taken so long to lay pretty much all of the others have caught up to the age where they might start laying. In fact, it might not be her egg at all, even though she's had a bright red comb and wattles and has been squatting for weeks now. Argh! Oh well, I guess I will just settle on being egg-cited that I finally get to eat some fresh eggs...no matter who decided to lay them!
