    Thanks! It's hard to see in the pic but it's a light lime green. These chickens are only 16 wks old so I don't expect many more eggs anytime soon. I'll probably just scramble it up and feed it back to them, I was happy with the shape and shell thickness though, These chickens free range and eat God-knows-what besides their feed. I know last year before we had them we were overrun with grasshoppers and this year we hardly have any.
     
  6. Congratulations on your first egg. Some day I will get an egg from one of the girls i am raising. Until then I will just get em from the already raised girls I bought from a good friend.

    Edited because I can't type for chicken poo
