Chicken Diary : The First Egg

Early last week we started a pool on when we'd see the first egg. The birds were officially over 20 weeks which meant they could start laying any time. Guesses ranged from as early as October 14th to as late as November 15th. Turns out Friday, October 10th was the magic date! Since then, there has been an egg a day. It is such a joy to see an itty bitty egg sitting in one of the nesting boxes, a feeling that will doubt take a while to get old.
