    Allright! It's a great feeling, isn't it?

    I went from 1 every other day to 6-8 per day from 10 hens, since last week.

    I am not sure who gave it to me - All look ready to lay - The Ameraucana's feather was beside the egg, but I doubt if that is the most telling sign. I praised them all for being such goooood birds! [​IMG]

    OOPs - just looked up and saw that Ameraucanas lay blue-green eggs, this one is definately brown. So it was one of my Red Stars!
