My little white and black speckled Americauna laid her first egg today. The "chicken experts" told me none of them would be ready till spring at the earliest. So I patiently waited.
This morning I was out feeding the chickens and couldn't find her. I searched the whole yard and started wondering if something had happened. Then, out from the rabbit hutch she comes, ready to eat with the rest. I was a little surprised to see her in there. She doesn't usually go in there. So I opened up the top and sitting there in a bunch of straw is her very first egg. A green one! Hurray!
