    Happy Happy Day here! We have our very first EGG! Our chickens are 20 weeks and 4 days old. We have 5 chickens. 2 - New Hampshire Red, 2 Black Sexlinks and one White Tetra (looks like a white leghorn)....we can't figure out who laid it [​IMG] It is light pinkish brown and I'd say it is medium size.

    I was so surprised to see it in the nesting box. I read here that you have to train them with golf balls...I had them on my list.

    My chickens also go in the chicken coop at dusk and all line up on the roosting bar.

    Are my chickens EXCEPTIONALLY SMART?????

    We just had our first egg Saturday and it was so exciting. I am pretty sure it is my EE laying, as she is a little bit older than the rest of the girls. Everyone of her eggs has been in a nesting box too! I think they just know.
