    We got our first egg too!!!! Of course, it was on the floor of the coop <grumble>. Don't they like those beautiful wooden eggs we put in the nesting boxes? Here's a pic... any guesses on who laid this? We have Welsummers, Barnevelder, EEs, Turken. All 21 weeks old except the EEs which are 19 weeks. It's a tiny egg, my 5 year old is holding it in the picture. We can't wait for more [​IMG]

    it took me a week to decide who was laying and which hens but i have them all split up into breeds but i still dont no wat EE hen is laying and there is only two of them laying and i only get one a day i got two one day so who nows but if you look at there vents the hen with the biggest vent probably most likely laid the egg especially if its your first layer in the flock

    We got another egg today, and we're certain it's the naked neck now [​IMG] Better still, she laid it in the nesting box for us! I can't get over how incredibly beautiful her eggs are. Am I a crazy chicken lady now? But seriously, these are the most lovely luminescent light brown with a rosy pink under-tone. I've never seen store bought eggs that looked even close to this pretty. Today's egg was all the more beautiful for being laid in the box instead of on the floor of the coop getting poopy :hmm
