    Way to go! Is she pecking them? Some appear to have holes in the bottom, maybe just my eyes.

    I have to confess. It is I who has been pecking the eggs. I'm an egg-eater!

    I've been interested to figure out who is laying what egg. I think it might be helpful to know, especially in a small flock, who lays what - so to keep an eye out for problems?

    Once the easter egger starts laying, and I know what everyone's eggs look like, I will obviously need to give this habit up. Either that, or get a bigger apartment! [​IMG]
