    So it turns out it was not a BSL who laid it.. It was the same hen who laid the dark brown egg and some discoloration happens when they are just starting to lay:/

    So Jolene has started laying! She first laid a soft shell egg while on the roost(we think) two days ago and laid her 1st good egg today! It's a light pink brown egg. Now getting 5 eggs a day!! Only 6 more chickens to start laying!

    My Black sex link started laying around 23.5/24 weeks old. She's now 27 weeks old and has been laying every day. I hope everyone's girls have been laying well lately!

    I have an opportunity to purchase some BSLs, and would love to based on their egg production. The one thing the kind of turns me off about them is that I've read that they can be really noisy. Is this true? As I know that all breeds can be noisy at times, are BSLs noisier that most?

    Mine isn't noisy (my BA is noisier then her). I would definitely recommend BSL! They are really friendly and great egg layers.
