    My very first, very tiny egg! I believe this was layed by my Leghorn since she's supposed to be my only "white egg layer" but it did have a small vent feather from a BR on it :confused: 18 weeks and 2 days old! Not sure if this is already a thing but keep it going and post pictures of your first egg! Oh, happy day!

    :weee

    I have the one Leghorn, 1 BR (lost my second one to a predator yesterday :hit ), 1 BO and 2 RIR. I'm sure the BR feather just got stuck there on accident. My Leghorn has a giant, red comb and wattles that seemed to grow overnight and has been doing the "squat" so I was expecting any day now from her.

    I'm so so sorry that your Br got killed.

    Yup,they do grow fast.any others that you expect to lay soon?

    Not too sure but I caught one of my RIR doing the squat the other day but she has since stopped. Hopefully they all lead by example!
