After having a terrible day yesterday I was pleasantly surprised this morning during my bird routine -I found the first ever egg! I thought it was too early for anyone to start laying, but the lovely proof fits in the palm of my hand! The oldest three of my six standards are roughly 18 weeks, and only the RIR and one of the Cuckoo Marans has really red wattles and combs. Any guesses as to who laid it? The egg seems kind of dark to me, so maybe the Marans? Love that color! It doesn't even register as "small!" So who do you think it was, Nutmeg or Cuckoo One? Needless to say, finding that first egg has made me so happy! It's the start of a new adventure and I can't wait for each and every egg!
