    So yesterday the first of my four EE laid her first egg. I was beside myself.

    Today, I got another egg. It's a different color, but I'm not sure if it's the same chicken or a different one. What do you think?

    (The whitish egg was given to me by my white chicken today is on the right, the egg from yesterday in the middle, and the egg on the left is the egg today)

    Quote:Wow, those are gorgeous!! It could be from the same chicken but it's hard to know for sure unless you're paying attention to who goes in which nest box. You'll be able to tell over time though. I have one olive EE and her eggs vary by color but not that dramatically from day to day.

    [​IMG] I got my first egg today from my new group. They are about 21 weeks old. I think it was one of my white orpington.

    Just a few more weeks (chanted, in rhythm), just a few more weeks (mine are 15 weeks old today).

    Those are absolutely lovely eggs.

    Quote:Inside the shell or the eggs themselves?

    The yolks were a pretty, deep orange, very tall. We ate them for breakfast. They were delicious.
