I got my first egg today! A little green one. I asked my husband to hold it for me while I finished raking out the coop and one of my fake Rhodies was staring at it in his hand. He asked if it was hers and she gave him a "well you're stupid" look and wondered off. I told him that she should lay a brown egg. In my defense for being so condescending, he had called me goofy for how excited I was.
lol I still get excited when I get a new egg from a new hen
lol I do too
yeah whats 1 ... no wait 2 more, you can have mine too.... you already have some of his old flock mates... this is the one I got while I was at your place to get the goat.
So about twoo weeks or so I believe I asked if eggs could still hatch if the hen was only sitting on them at night and only partially during the day... Everyone said no and my hopes sunk... Well I gathered the rir egg because they were only being sat on during the day and not night... I left the Orpington eggs because they were being sat on during the night and I was curious. tonight I checked and to confirm what everyone said one after another that I candled never developed... 7 empty, 8 empty.... Number nine and the last one(the one in the middle) developed as far as I can tell it is fully developed and should be hatching in the next couple days or so... I don't really know why this one did and none of the others did.. I guess it was because it was in the middle and kept warm the longest or something idk really
Thats odd, but cool. Just goes to show ya, ya just never know...
wow I have never seen green with speckles... can ya post a pic????
