    I got my first egg yesterday, and today I got another one! So happy that I was almost speechless. [​IMG] My pullets are almost 29 weeks old, and I didn't provide lights for them. I thought I wouldn't have any eggs until next spring.

    I don't know which pullet laid this egg. Could it be the RIR?

    The right one is the commercial egg I bought from BJ's a few days ago.

    My egg's yolk looks much darker than the supermarket egg's.

    I have to say that raising chickens is an addiction, and I can't wait for next spring to order more layers. [​IMG]

    not only is the color different, but your yolk is huge compared to the store one!
