We got 6 girls at 8 weeks old back in June (2 leghorns, 2 Columbians, and 2 Barred Rocks). They were hatched April 14. We've been eagerly awaiting eggs since then. Two weeks ago, we took back what turned out to be a Columbian Rooster, who our supplier was happy to get back, and in exchange he gave us a already-laying Barred Rock cross, and a beautiful little Danish (or Dutch) Leghorn, who's maybe two or three weeks younger than the rest. Anyway, we started getting eggs from the cross right away, which was super cool.......but on Saturday, we got our first 'real' egg from the original batch! It has to be from one of the Barred Rocks (a brown egg), but it was so small! maybe a quarter of the volume of the cross's eggs! I'm not complaining - they're really cute. And, yesterday, we got our first white egg from one of the leghorns - maybe even smaller than the barred rocks! It could have been from the Columbian I suppose - does anyone know what color eggs a Columbian Rock lays? Anyway - I'm anticipating an avalanche of tiny little eggs in the next week or two. Very Excited! No More Freeloaders!
