    Husband went out to open up the coop this morning and came back with 2 small perfectly shaped eggs! We think they are probably from our Sicilian Buttercup.
    Later this afternoon, about 4 pm, there was another egg.

    Our girls were purchased as week-old chicks on Memorial Day so that would make them about 25-weeks-old. The other hens should start laying soon as well.
    I'll have to play detective early in the morning to see just who is laying.

    Congratulations!! I'm still waiting for the first egg and your news renews my faith that chickens really do lay eggs. Thanks.

    It's hard not to roll that 1st little egg around looking for fingers and toes to count.
