Finally at almost 22wks, Eve my little leghorn gave it up.Although still a little small it wasn't soft at all. For a first egg I think it was perfect...the size of small eggs in the grocery. I'm so happy, I was afraid they might not be getting enough light. Now if I can just get her to use the egg nest that she has been going in & out of. Although it has Easter eggs in it she laid hers out on the ground. Maybe she's trying to make the others jealous.
