    For many of you who have been waiting for their first egg, I thought it would be nice to publish pictures of my first eggs. I have one Delaware (24 weeks young), Rhode Island (24 weeks young) and Ameraucana (23 weeks young).
    July 24 @ 08:00 PDT
    Upon checking my coop, I found one small brown egg outside of the nesting box. I am assuming that this egg is from my Delaware as it is brown and I saw her in the nesting box after finding this first egg.

    Look at the right bottom corner. You will see one small brown egg.

    July 24 @ 16:00 PDT. This second egg was found in the nesting box.
    [​IMG][​IMG]The two small eggs are from my chicks and the remaining from Trader Joe's.


    July 25 @ 11:20 PDT. Another brown egg. I still don't know who laid it, but the Amerecauna was sitting on it.

    I found my Amerecauna sitting in the box. When she
    finally came out, I found a brown egg.
    As she is suppossed to lay blue/green eggs, I am assuming
    that it's from my Delaware or the Rhode Island

    Little brown egg.
    After my research, I determined that this egg is
    from my Amerecauna. I was waiting for blue/green
    eggs, but got a ivory colored eggs.
    All three eggs in a carton. All very small

    At 6:30am, I could hear the Delaware clucking mad.
    I am assuming that she was laying an egg. Tomorrow, I will
    attempt to go out and video her laying an egg.
