    Cook our first home grown eggs this morning the difference between store brought and fresh from the coop was huge everything except the size was better I'm guessing since our hens are only new to laying as they get bigger so will there eggs. Pretty happy right about now. Left is the store brought right is fresh from our girls [​IMG]

    Well, my Marans pullets are all laying (only 4 of them and all at less than 6 months), so I have been following them around. Think I nearly have it worked out who is laying what.

    Not sure Sandee, but they are not showing any red in their comb yet. Different breeds show different characteristics when starting to show the difference in sexes. You get to know your own line of birds. I just hatched some shipped eggs, they are 2 weeks old, and although the same breed as mine, they are feathering in totally different.
