    I was standing at the patio door and heard (what is very unmistakable "HEY LOOK AT ME") Squawking come from the hen house! [​IMG]

    I am sooo proud! One of the girls laid her first egg [​IMG] (about 10 minutes ago....LOL) [​IMG]

    FWIW: The girls will be 21 weeks on Monday and are Golden Sex Link (RIR & RIW cross)

    Now the BAD news....We just finished up an antibiotic routine and worming and won't be able to eat the eggs for another 10 days [​IMG]

    But the GOOD news is they are all Coccidia free and doing GREAT! [​IMG]

    Can you guess which Egg is the Golden Egg? [​IMG]

    I just had to share......Personally (being the Proud Daddy I am) I think this egg is a very nice size for a first effort![​IMG]

    Thanks everyone for the Congratulations.....Am I supposed to pass out cigars now?[​IMG]
