    Guess what??!!! My dad called and said he found an egg in the chicken nest box today!!!!! :eek: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] We don't know which one layed it, but it's a pretty small brown egg! I don't have pics, but it's the first one out of the 4 pullets! We think it might be from our Buff Orpington pullet, Setherina, since it's in the nest box that she likes to sleep in LOL [​IMG] But it also might be from the Red Star pullet, Linda, since one of the roosters who shares the coop with them recently "mounted" her. YAY!!! Now we will be getting 3 eggs a day!(we have two other adult hens that were laying when we got them) The pullets are about 6 months old. [​IMG] Soo happy that at least on of them started!!! [​IMG] Maybe now we can hatch out our own buff orpington eggs next Spring....!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    SOO EXCITED!!!!!

    Quote:LOL! I wanted so badly to announce that yesterday we had our first pullet egg breakfast, green chorizo with fried potatoes and eggs (12 from our newly laying RIR(19 weeks to the day). She has layed 1 a day and we saved them to make this breakfast) and after we finished breakfast we went outside and our 21 week old australorp had layed her first egg. I decided not to post under new egg announcements for her sake.
