One of the chickens has finally laid an egg!!!
It feels like it has taken them FOREVER to start laying eggs. I have 5 Australorps and 3 Dominickers all of them are 164 days old or 5-1/2 months. The day my chickens hatched they were put in a box and shipped across the country. It just seems so unnatural to receive baby chicks in the mail.
I’m not sure if this is an Australorp egg or a Dominicker egg. The shell was very thin and cracked at the top, so I didn’t eat it, but the yolk was a healthy looking orange-yellow color.
