    The first eggs are always "eggsciting", and I have trouble even eating them, I'm so proud of them. Congratulations!! I wont get any from my new chicks and the ones I have coming until Sept. at the earliest.

    well I think these were around 25 weeks old I have four out of six laying at that age and a few delawares, leghorns, and a campamine coming up to laying now they are around 20 weeks old and seem to be close.

    I had no trouble eating them they were so good [​IMG] I love the color and size range but I am espeacialy proud of my Maran girl because her eggs are as big as the store bought ones we have left over. The EE also made me happy because she does not look very EEish but laid a nice blue/green egg !

    Thanks,
    Henry

    It's always so eggciting when they start to lay. You sound like you've got a nice mix. All the best with them.

    I'm on day 18 with 8 marans eggs. I can't wait for the day that they start laying dark brown eggs.
