    And what type are they?

    We have two OEGB's that are the same age and this week, I've been finding one egg a day in their box. I don't know if it's just one hen laying or both. I wish I knew! Today I did find one regular egg and two fart eggs (the fart eggs weren't in the box though...they were just laying on the ground).

    Hi,

    I have two silkies and when they aren't broody they usually average four eggs a week each. I think the eggs are tastier too, or maybe it's just cause they are so cute. [​IMG]
