    I am sooooooooo excited! Went out tonight and there it was!!! Not sure what girl laid it but i think it was probably one of my Golden Sex Links.
    Patience is not my best quaility so it was hard waiting for the first egg.

    I brought it in all happy and then took about 50 pictures of it. Haha!! It seems like yesterday that they were just little fluffy chics.
    I'll post one soon!!

    Oh here it is......soooooo cute....[​IMG]

    Take care,
    Jodie

    Congrats!!!! I know I can't wait till my little guys start laying. We technically have hens laying eggs, but I do not feel like we have had our first egg yet because the hens that are laying were inherited. The chicks we bought and had originally were little chicks when I got them and I am so having a hard time waiting for their first egg.
