    My 23 week old RIR was on the nest box from 7:30am this morning until 12:30pm. I almost posted a post because I was so worried something was wrong for her being on the nest so long. The egg is perfect and has a really hard shell! Here are pictures of the egg and my girl who laid the egg. [​IMG]

    Compared to a store bought large egg... I love the brown speckles on the egg!

    nice! that's a good-sized egg for the first one. my RIR's lay big eggs, so hopefully yours will too since she started with that one.
