    Look at what I got today!!!! The girls have finally started to really lay for me. I was getting only a couple here and there and this is what I got today. They must really like the hot weather that we are having.

    Congrats. R the green ones speckled or it is 'dirt'? Pretty.
    I have 11 so far today, might get a few more before nightfall. My e.e. prefer to lay later in the day for some reason. I am doing a happy dance myself over all the eggs, 10 plus a day this week, and not everyone is laying yet.

    Thanks everyone!!! The green eggs are speckled shaylee. I was happy to see that they laid speckled eggs. At first one was laying these really blueish eggs that were so pretty. But the more that she lays the greener and more speckled they get. I can't wait for the Marans to start laying - the freeloaders.
