WOW! our first egg at last, This morning my son had a big smile on his face as he came down the garden after feeding the chickens before he went to school, holding this perfect but small light brown egg.

We have four new hens three are now a very nice size and we think it was probably from one of them.

However the forth is a bit smaller and has had a cold which was sorted by the vet with antibiotics, which means egg withdrawal until the end of Feb. So unless we actually see the hen lay the egg it has to be thrown away, such a waste!

Still we are all very happy and hope all the hens will start soon,

Happy Days........Laugh

Oh I am so glad you have an egg.  Isn't it a great feeling.  I'm sure the rest will start soon.  I know you can't eat them yet but when you do you will be so glad you got your hens.    Laugh
