It will no doubt still be some time still before they're all layin' regularly, but one of this years pullets (3 RSL, 1 BSL, 2WW, 1 BR and 1 BO) laid her first egg this morning. And a fine egg it is, too. I'd have expected the first ones to be small (and maybe this one is for what they will eventually be, but it rests as the sole brown specimen in the carton of store-bought Grade A large white eggs Miss Karee has in the fridge and it's larger than any of them. Don't know which one to suspect/congratulate/thank. I' guess the SLs are known for starting to lay earlyand the black and one of the red ones are larger than most of the rest. But there's a White Wyandotte in there. I've kept an eye on her because she developed a crossed beak, but she's one of the top dogs and is a quarter-again bigger than the next in size, so I guess she's doin' just fine, and might the the one to get the blue ribbon for first egg. Never woulda thunk it this soon. The birds just hatched 12 weeks ago today.
