We have an egg!!!

I know, what's the big deal about an egg? The big deal is we have our first egg from one of the Rhode Island Red pullets... she's choosing to remain anonymous at this time. That means, eventually we could be getting 12 eggs a day, if everyone that is capable does her part.
The picture is labeled so you can see the difference in an egg from a mature hen and a first egg. It is a pretty good sized egg for a first one. Eventually the Reds will lay eggs that are comparable to this, but maybe not quite so big. Our two old Leghorn hens lay really big eggs.
Here are some pictures of the chickens today:

Remember, in August they looked like this:

In September, they looked like this:
