    All 3 of my standard girls are laying as of last weekend but today's the first day that all 3 laid me an egg. [​IMG] It was our first 3-egg day.

    I love having chickens!

    Isn't it wonderful? I remember in Nov. when my 2 brahma started to lay how excited I was. I still am. I love gathering the eggs. Yep! I am getting two a day. My brahma are no slouches. I have been getting some double yolkers at times. I sort of want that to stop. I want the girls to stay healthy. If it weren't so muddy here with clay I would like to have more of them I think. Right now I have 6 bo's that are 10 weeks old I can barely wait till they start to lay. This Feb. I will get blue orps. and delawares. Yeh. Jean

    Oh... I hadn't thought of a no-egg day! [​IMG]

    We're headed to a party at a friends' house tonight. I'm taking them 6 eggs: 2 from each of our girls. The eggs are so pretty! Our RIR lays dark brown eggs, the BR lays light, nearly pink eggs, and the BSL lays latte brown eggs.

    I can't wait to hand them over!!

    There's a place here in town that has all sorts of chickens. I met the woman I can thank for that. She has quite the chicken operation just south of the store and she goes in and puts in special orders. The babies that are left over are for the rest of us in town - ha!

    I bought mine at 10 weeks from another place - a local farm - and was able to pick my three girls out from 20 different breeds. We have a red spotted sussex (light cream eggs), a silver laced cochin (mocha eggs with adorable freckles), and an americauna (sage green eggs).
