    Congrats! They won't be tiny for long. ;)

    Nice assortment! I hadn't heard of lakeshore eggers before...you should have a very colorful egg basket when they lay.

    That is my goal. The lakeshore has kind of a crest like the swedish flower. This gives me 14 ladies

    Nice! We have a frost white legbar from Meyer. She is 29 weeks old and just started to lay eggs (likely yours will lay sooner as you'll be gaining light and won't have a polar vortex thrown in there). Her eggs are a nice shade. Here is a pic of her first egg - the blue one next to some of the brown eggs some others lay:

  5. That's a lovely shade of blue.
    So sweet! And when they snuggle up to the heat of your hand it just melts my heart!
