    Got my first egg today alongside some birds that were given to me. So in all I got three the one on the left is my bird from man's chicks. The next two are from given birds and the last is a storebought egg for comparison [​IMG]

    Congratulations it is so eggciting to get your first egg from a bird that you have raised from a chick. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Quote:From what I can tell it was from my barred rock hens. They are the ones with the reddest combs. That and the egg seems to be the barred rock color. Oops she is almost eggactly 25 weeks.
