    Hi Jim-n-Janet, Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    So where are you writing from? How many chickens do you have? C'mon, detail, details!!!! Egg layers lay at all different times of the day. Yes, there will be eggs every day depending on how many you have. I have 15 girls and we average 12 a day. You could save your first and collect more than have a celebratory breakfast! Sorry I can't help out in the pics dept, I haven't figured that part out yet either.

    Hi Lacy, hi Lori,
    Thanx for the welcome.
    Yes, Lacy, it was one of our "chickens" that laid the egg LOL.That was two days ago now and so far no more.. [​IMG]
    We are in SW Pa, we have 8 birds,(so far LOL), all girls,(so far). Hopefully Lori, by the weekend we'll have enough eggs for that celebratory breffa.If all we have is still the one...oh well, we share everything anywho [​IMG]
    WE have a small piece here, jist under an acre but, we are surrounded by hundreds of wooded acres with no chance of ever havin any other houses near by so we can pretty much do what we want. MMmmmm.... i see pygmy goats and who knows what else in our near future. WE just moved in, no, we are still movin in here so come summer after we git somewhat settled i guess a trip the farm auction in Rogers Ohio is in order [​IMG].Will keep ya posted.
