I'm getting one egg every day since my only hen finished molting. We gave her a three month break and then set up a timer to come on at 6am and turn off at 8am. It's just a little extra, but worked like a charm!

This is my first white egg since my pet Golden Campine died in the spring. I'd forgotten how pretty white can be.
Sharol your eggs are so pretty! I have never heard of a Breda chicken! Guess I have some googling to do! I think having a white egg really makes colors POP, so I plan to add one to our little flock.
My two EE ladies that I bought this summer still haven't started laying, but hopefully come january I will start seeing some new colors! They should be old enough then.
I moved the CClegbar and blue egg mix chicks into a partition of the coop, as they were getting very messy inside! They hatched thanksgiving and have been fun to watch grow.
Their proof heads are the best! (The mixes are part CCL too)
Hope everyone is enjoying this very WARM Christmas season!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!
