Well, it finally happened! On Friday I came home to find my first egg!!! I was so excited, I put it in the fridge and must have checked on it at least 5 times during the evening to make sure I didn't imagine it!!! I got an egg on Friday, one on Saturday, and one this morning (Sunday). I know it was one of my buff orpingtons that laid the egg this morning. I caught her in the act in the nest box, and she bit me when I tried to get it from her! Here's my question, when I put today's egg next to Friday's egg (I've already given Saturday's egg away), they are different shades of brown. Do I actually have 2 hens laying? Or will the shade of the egg vary on a daily basis? Thanks!
