Checked the nesting boxes this morning after I fed the chickens & there was nothing, again. I've been starting to get a little disappointed, since my girls are about 22 weeks old & I've been looking for eggs.

Well, came home this afternoon with supplies to make modifications to the coop & thought I'd check again. I found two little gems waiting for me! My 11 year old son, who helps me with the chickens & garden, & I were so excited! Yay!

They were small, but they're the girls' first eggs! We have 8 hens of laying age, so I'm hoping they'll all join in the fun soon!

Yes! I have three nesting boxes for them to choose from, and they both chose the same one! I thought it was a little strange, but I was so excited over our first eggs. :)

Congratulations on those perfect first eggs! Good job girls!!! Mine too will use the same nest box. Gets kinda nasty when 2 or 3 want the same box at the same time. Never mind there are 2 other nest boxes to choose from! Goofy girls. :p
