    Does anyone keep track of how their egg size develops, starting from the first eggs from a pullet? Some sort of tables or graphs would be interesting to see.

    Here's our development so far (No, no, this isn't going too far into specifics at all)

    Not to that level!

    And my wife was complaining of me keeping track of egg/day in spreadsheet...

    Still keep at it, we might find a trend. [​IMG]

    They're easy to tell apart, although the Alho's can be a bit difficult. Viiru lays slightly darker shelled eggs, but Virpi and Veera have the same color. Virpi's tend to be 5g larger though.

    If I were you I'd show monthly averages. Might help with trends as they age.

    I'll do some weekly averages once I get a decent sample size. Not much to count with yet...

    Here's an updated version of my table, with some more fields added. If anyone else has something similar, I'd love to see it.

    Oh Yeah, I've got one of those. Problem is, can't tell all the eggs apart...

    ...what I need now is a camera to record during the 5-7 hours of laying time each day with a really good viewing program that allows me to scan thru it easily to see who laid which egg ;-)

    We just have one hen laying now, but I have been keeping track of egg weights. Cause I'm curious [​IMG]
