    Princess was 24 weeks, 2 days when she laid that beauty. [​IMG]

    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.

    She looks like my Prissy and Betsy. Very pretty girl. [​IMG]

    Thank you. I named her after my grandma Josephine and I named my Black Australorp Sophie, after my other grandma.

    OH I'M SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    That is a great egg color! I have 11 chickens and the 2 oldest are 16 weeks this week!!!!!, one of them is an EE!!!! I can't wait to see what color she lays!!!
    Thanks for sharing!
    P.S. What other hens lay your brown eggs, the darker with speckles? Are all your chicks from hatcheries?
