Who else is waiting for that first egg? - Page 232
Came home for lunch from work today. Went out to feed some goodies as I couldn't get out there this morning. And, Score! First egg!
It's the small one compared to grocery store egg.
Not sure who, but I think it's Gretta...
She's the most mature although all 7 were purchased on July29th.
Funniest thing is, yesterday and even this Am, the girls never came out of the coop. Do they all stay in to admire the new mom? Was Gretta keeping the others at bay to protect her new egg? Oh well, very happy. Waiting for others to join in.
Best part, it was right smack dab in the nesting box on the first try!
Happy New Year to all...Phil
All my girls are laying now and steady through the winter... one started laying a rubbery egg and then some some thin cream colored shelled eggs. Now her eggs are slightly getting bigger and the shell is more hardy it's changes cream tones too. I make sure the feed has crush egg shells to beef up the calcium in their diet. My other girls lay hardy large dark brown, medium brown, and a brown with speckles.
Does anyone know if the small cream eggs will continue to get larger?
One was just starting to lay once every few days late September early October they were just maturing when the days shortened and not an egg since. I waited till two weeks ago to give them supplimental light on at 4am and off at 7:30am natural evenings so pretty dark by 5pm. It paid off Friday and Saturday the Delaware gave us her first two eggs and today someone else laid one outside in the run but it was bluegreen so Easter Egger or Cream Legbar.
She laid her first egg, though not in the box. Will need to make her a box closer to ground level.
