    After having her for almost a full year, my little white cochin (who I bought as a 10-12 mo old) finally gave me her first egg! [​IMG] She's normally so quiet, so when I heard her clucking & making all kinds of noise, I went out to make sure she was OK. She was just announcing her egg for me [​IMG] Now, I'm getting 4 eggs from my 4 chickens. I'll post a picture of all 4 when I have a chance. She laid a nice little light-brown egg. It goes well with the other shades of brown from my other girls.

    Here's Bo, she's a silver-laced wydonnette: I got Bo as a baby last spring, so she's about a year old.

    This is Curly, the White Cochin, and Pouff, the White-Crested Polish: Both of these were bought as hens last year, so they're roughly 2 years old.

    This one is Sexy, a Black Sex-Link: I got her and Bo at the same time, same age.

    Quote:Thanks [​IMG] No, I'm not allowed roosters in town, so no babies for these girls [​IMG] What kind of pullets did you get? My black-sex link started laying eggs when she was 7-8 months old.

    well, im not esactly sure which ones are cocks, although i have a pretty good idea. i have 2 red sex link pullets, 1 black sex link pullet, a cockerel that looks like a black sex link pullet (im not sure what breed) and a speckled sussex that i think is a cock.
