Hello, Hello I'm so excited! Just found my first egg!! 26 week old Cuckoo Marans, or could it be the Black Australorp? I don't know But it doesn't really matter. I just got a perfectly shaped, light brown, strong shelled on the small side egg! With time & longer days coming, I'll see more & bigger eggs. The best Christmas present I could get. I'm on a cloud I got my first egg Merry Christmas to all & to all a good day!
