    Hooray! I just went to care for the girls and a got a cute little brown eggs in the box. I knew they were getting close at 19 weeks. I will hopefully be able to stop buying eggs soon.[​IMG]

    Congrats! You will soon have an abudence of eggs. I always have had 2 or 3 RIR in my flock and they are by far the most consistent brown egg layers for me. They still don't out lay my white leghorns, but I love the RIRs.

    So get those egg cartons ready and get your customers lined up.

    Congratulations are in order. My EE chix have not started laying yet. They seem to be the late bloomers. I can hardly wait to see them appear in the box.
