    We've been getting eggs from our girls for a couple of weeks now but every time is it so exciting! (or should I say... eggciting! [​IMG])

    We have 4 hens "of age" (and I think one, maybe two, pullets who are JUST now old enough to lay...) and we usually get about 2 eggs a day now.

    The HUGE super dark egg is from a Cuckoo Maran hen (thanks Rodney!).
    It might be a double yolker?? It's the only one we've gotten so far from our two new CM hens. So I'm not sure if this is normal size. It is much larger than the eggs we've been getting from our Buff Orpingtons.
