    I cant wait to see if my hatch rates go up this coming spring. The pullet eggs had terrible hatch rates. They did get better as the summer closed out but It will be my original hens second full summer . And ill finally get to test them with cream colored males. Fingers crossed for everyone to have a good spring and summer

    Thanks DA . I just used a dewormer that said not to use with hens laying eggs for consumption. They said to wait 2 weeks if you're going to eat the chicken..so I'm assuming after 3 weeks they should be edible again. Im only getting an egg a week from my ccl if im lucky. This spring i can probably give you some eggs. Or sooner if they start laying more

    I wonder who can guess correctly who laid which blue egg. There's a Cream Legbar egg, there's a lavender or black ameraucana egg , and there's a lavender Ameraucana X black cochin egg. The brown ones are from a barred Cochin and a Rhode Island white

    For shape, I'd guess the first blue is the Cream egg...I have zero knowledge of the other breeds :)

    Sure I'll play. Seems like most CL eggs I've had have been less oblong and more oval/blunted on the narrow end so that would be middle or left. So I'm going to have to go with Left Cream Legbar, Right Lavendar Am, Middle LavAmxCochin

    How are your rooster's waddles looking?
