    Just a few short weeks ago they were all gangly teenagers...and today [​IMG] Here they are at 23 weeks and.....

    TODAY!!!

    One of our black austrolorps Oprah laid her first little brown egg [​IMG] I am soooo proud of her!! I took them all out treats to celebrate the happy day! Our first egg from the babies..../sigh and its perfect too. Laid in the nesting box and no issues with the shell...I am so happy [​IMG]

    I gave her a big smooch on the comb and she looked at me like I was nuts...but its the FIRST EGG!!!
