    Here is Trixie, who laid my very 1st little brown egg on July 26. Since then, she has laid an egg almost every day, & they are almost regular size now

    Next came Daisy, who had me stumped while she got her dyeworks running smoothly (with bright yellow streaks & various shades of cream), but she's been fairly regular for about a week, & they're now white, and nearly normal size now.

    This morning, for the 1st time, I got 2 white eggs, so the other one has to be from my littlest one, Sunny:

    Then, wonder of wonders - this morning I got a lovely light green egg, & I happened to catch her celebration after laying it, so I know I can thank Sophie:

    and, late this morning, I got a 2nd brown egg, which has to be from my GLW, Chocklick:

    Chocklick is sitting for her portrait as we speak.

    So, 5 down & 1 to go - my 2nd EE, Coco. She is bottom of the pecking order, & very sensitive. I am keeping my fingers crossed for her.

    The God-light on Trixie is awesome. Sunny also has a striking pose. You should be very proud of your birds and your creative artwork! Congratulations on the eggs!

    I love your framing (read as jealous of your abilities). [​IMG]
    Chocklick must be your what- sad step daughter?- she didnt get a pretty frame or any bright rays from heaven. Poor Chocklick.[​IMG]

    Oh dear, it's so hard to be a mother & get things right all the time. Chocklick laid her 1st egg today, so I didn't have her portrait done yet, but I thought I'd better include her anyway.
    I hope someday she'll forgive me.
