    We got THREE green eggs today! [​IMG] I am so excited. One green layer just started Sunday.
    We also got our first odd egg today. Shell feels kind of thin on one side... but amazingly it is whole. It's like there is an air bubble.

    That's called a "flat sided" egg. This is often seen in new layers. Make sure to have free-choice oyster shell available. It happens once in awhile, nothing to worry about.

    My first EE gave us a green egg at 20 weeks exactly. They are probably 25 weeks old now.
