    On the left is a Australorp pullet egg i have been getting. In the middle is a silkie pullet egg i have been getting. Now the one to the far right is from my pullet Millie fleur girl Amy. Now i know that typically and newly laying pullet's eggs start small and get bigger over time...but when i saw her very first egg i thought it was really on the small side.

    I have one D'Uccle hybrid (crossed with a Serama roo), and she's our favorite bird. So sweet! And who could resist a bearded hen? Ours only has a single feather on each foot, though.

    This spring we're going to try to hatch some of her eggs to get a few more bearded ladies for our flock.
