    Here it is next to one of my other girls regular brown eggs! It's so pretty. Yes, it is broke. My daughter dropped it. At least I know it's fertile though! [​IMG]

    Quote:My pullets were 20 weeks and 2 days old, Monday, when I got the first egg! I got another one on Tuesday but I haven't got one since. I can't wait until they are all laying regularly! I want to fill that first carton!

    how exciting I keep going out and peeking to see if ours has laid yet! Our Goldline laid her first last friday and nothing since [​IMG], we picked a Maran specifically because of the beautiful coloured eggs. Yay to your clever Maran [​IMG]
