First egg!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm stupidly excited This is our first time having chickens, so it's very much our first egg! They're 20 weeks, I wasn't quite expecting it yet, I thought it would take another week or two, even a month. But we do have buff orpingtons and black giants, so I guess they are good layers!

It's small, but the shell is nice and hard and it's a great shape!

Size comparison (to store bought)

I just had to share! Dh and I went out to check on the garden and let the girls out to roam for awhile, and there it was!

So exciting! And it looks quite cute next to the white egg.

All good and perfect gifts...

Yay! How fun! I can only dream along while reading of your first egg since we're far from having a place where we can have chickens, but it sounds so fun. How many do you have? 20 weeks, huh? very cool!

Gloria in excelsis Deo, indeed!

I *still* get excited when I find a first egg from a newly matured hen from our established flock! LOVE IT!

Congrats
