    [​IMG][​IMG]:weee We are first time chicken parents. We got our first 2 eggs this morning. Small light beige in color eggs. My hubby thinks they are from our Silver Laced Bantam Cochins. One was laid in the run and the other in the roost. We have chicken wire under the roost and that was were we found the second egg. The egg in the running hubby didnt get to quick enough and the Barred Rocks started eating it.
