What comes first

The chicken or the egg?
For us- it was the chicken. We bought our first egg layers in the spring of 2011. We got a variety: 3 barred rocks,  3 easter eggers, and 2 black asterlorp. We were under the impression they were all hens. To our surprise we ended up with two roosters {1 barred rock, 1 easter egger}.
It took about four months for the girls to start producing - resulting in fresh delicious eggs like these.
