    So my ladies hatched back in early september and for the last two months I've been eagerly awaiting that first egg, even switched them to layer feed a month ago. I started with 6 and after a hawk attack and terrible winter, I am now down to three so this first egg means even more to me. Not sure who laid it, but I heard a hen singing the "egg song" and rushed out to find this beautiful olive egg:

    For a pullet first egg this thing is HUGE! I think it's from one of my ladies that hatched from blue eggs, Bobbi or Spot (the two white ones):

    EDIT:
    My ladies are sneaky! I had a feeling and went digging around in the coop and found two more eggs! Definitely one from each pullet!

  8. May I ask what breed your white hens are? They are beautiful and I love their egg color :)

    They're just mutt chickens I hatched from eggs from a friends backyard flock. She has a mix of EEs, silver laced wyandottes and Black copper marans. I believe the white hens came from EE hens with two different roos. One had a wyandotte sire and the other a marans sire. I think this because my friend has feather footed marans and Bobbi is feather footed where as Spot is not. Blue (the not white chicken) hatched from a marans egg and had the wyandotte as a sire since she has lacing in her feathers, she's definitely the pink egg. I think Spot is the mint green and Bobbi is the olive, both hatched from sky blue eggs.
