I actually saw Princess lay today for the 1st time. She is my first EE to lay and I've been anxiously awaiting the egg color, being from a hatchery and all. Just wanted to brag on her a little. This is her egg, among some of the others:

Taken inside, next to a window for natural light and on a white plate.

(I'm so good at taking pictures...that's my random foot. LOL)

I have 2 Ideal Hatchery EE's that are about 4 months old. My 3rd EE, also from Ideal, lays green eggs, she was just short of 5 months old when she layed her first egg.

Princess was 24 weeks, 2 days when she laid that beauty.


Here she is:



She is the farthest to the left, with the partridge coloring. Her "sister" looks the same (next to her), but less golden/red.
