    Sugar and Spice at 22 weeks - Such social butterflys, it's hard to get them alone. They are now laying light brown eggs. Spice started laying at 21 weeks of age and has not missed a day yet. She has layed 1 egg per day for 16 days in a row now. Sugar started several days later and is trying to catch up.
