    I got my first egg today!! I noticed a few signs this week leading up so I’m glad I’ve finally got my first out of the way. A little sad it’s not blue BUT good things come to those who wait (I hope) :fl

    The photo above (with the two pullets in the background) shows the closest version of the true colour of the egg.

    We have another egg! It’s a different shade than the first one so I was excited about that!
    I’ve attached a few images, some of my two suspects and the two eggs if anyone has any guesses that’d be great thanks!
