Finally! Yesterday, one of our EEs gave us a beautiful (albeit smallish) blue egg! I wasn't home all day, and when I went out to give them their daily treats, I found it cuddled in the middle box. Jumped for joy! Sure wish I had heard the egg song. But nobody's talking, so nobody can get the credit and lots of praise from me. They were 20 weeks on Monday, so I think that is early!
Our Speckled Sussex have nice big red combs so I was sure I would find a tan egg first. So proud of my girls. Every time I pass the egg on the kitchen counter, I smile and think "that came from one of my girls!" Don't really know what to do with it. I don't want to crack the shell, it's sooo beautiful (as you can see). I can blow out the egg, but won't see how beautiful it looks all plumped up orange yolk and thick creamy white...so for now, I just enjoy looking at it.
