    She is 22 weeks and laid her first egg today but we can't eat it because we are worming her. Argh! It is such a pretty little egg, too. Tiny in comparison to the golden comet's egg, but it was quite the accomplishment for little Sunny. She's a good chikken.

    Congratulations! You didn't take a picture? I love my Buffy eggs. Each of 5 lays a different color, tan, lavender,lavender with white speckles, peach, and a light terra cotta brown. They started out small, but now are xtra large and jumbo. I bet you can't wait to taste one!

    Congrats! My Buff Orp, Sunny, is 4 years old and not laying right now. I miss her big eggs.

    Here we go. This is next to the golden comet egg which is humungo....won't fit in a extra large store bought carton. You should be able to judge the size by that.

    Blow it out, paint it gold, (or purple, even!) add glitter and a ribbon, hang it from your rearview mirror!

    Blowing out and saving the first egg! Wish I had heard that a few months ago before my girls started laying. That would have been an awesome dust collecting keep sake. Not sure what I would have done with them, but its an awesome idea.

    Oops. Sorry.

    Congratulations on your BOs first egg!​
