Ok, I'm excited and I don't care who knows it. Finally found my first eggs from my tiny flock. Whoopee!

It's is always exciting! I still get thrilled when I find the first one after they molt, lol. Makes the work all worth it, little golden nuggets!

Yay! I am excited for you! I remember the first time my first flock laid, I was so happy to see one single egg inside the nest!

I also used golf balls for my current flock to know where I wanted them to lay. It worked great.

I think those bottom two may take a while to boil.


Congrats btw! The first eggs are special.

Thanks everybody 😊
