These are from my leg horn, they were actually really small, they just look big in my tiny raccoon hands ūüėā

I love all these egg pictures It's ridiculous how excited I was to find mine! This particular chickens personality has changed too, doesn't mind being touched or picked up, and quite chatty! Now hoping the rest will join in. We have an ameracuana, australorp, silver laced wyandotte, buff Orpington, leg horn and a black star. Should make for a pretty half dozen! ūüėä

I go out to turn my 9 young hens & three roosters out of their coop into their secure covered run at 5:45am and usually there are at least 2 eggs in the nest box and a couple hens in the nest boxes at that time. They usually come off the roost around 3:30am -4:00 am and start their day. I have string lights in their coop which provide them just enough light to see.

Nice! Yes, Productions Reds eggs can get quite large but start off fairly small in most cases. Sounds like you have a great flock and hopefully you'll be getting lots of eggs.

Thanks. Two of the EEs are still laying, as is the BA, albeit somewhat sporadically. I have five other pullets (4 EE's, one Marans) scheduled to start earning their feed sometime 'round the end of February / beginning of March. I am eagerly awaiting to see what they give out, especially as only one of my currently laying Easter Eggers gives a colored egg (bluish green).

 

And Congrats @Skellapi for your five. Olive Eggers?
