    For those of you who have kept a meaty to experiment with eggs.
    For the first time I got this almost white egg.... Compared to my others, it is very out. Of place. I'm wondering if she he started laying?? What do you think?.[​IMG]

    How old is your cornish cross? Did you raise it like a regular chicken?
    How big is it? I'm very curious.

    She IS A Cornish cross. She was the smallest of the meat lot and I spared her. The rest are light Sussex and white rocks and some combos. Two breeds I am very happy with.
    She is probably 22 weeks old or so and weighs about 10 lbs. I will have to post a photo... She is healthy and in with the others... And I try not to let her eat too much, they sure dont!! She is the last add in, so they chase her away from the food and give her a hard time, which is probably keeping her alive.

    I am addicted to hatching and would like to begin hatching some of her eggs to experiment. I love to experiment!!
