We got our chickens the last week of August. When I got them the lady said they will be laying anyday. So I waited....and waited...and worried,asked questions ,wormed them, went through a molt with a few, eye infection with one, and finally said " probably won't get any eggs until spring!" So I went to let them out this afternoon, checked the nest boxes and "ANYDAY" is here!!!!! Two eggs today! TWO Beautiful pinkish brown XLG wonders of nature. I never checked yesterday when I locked up the coop(It was Raining.) Well here is the picture. The white one is a storebought LG. egg for comparison.(Yes store bought ,I really gave up hoping for eggs until spring) I think they are from one of my barred rocks. But a great surprise.
