    Oh my. Thanks for indulging me. What an exciting day it is. The sky is blue, the air is crisp and my beau found a blue-green egg where the girls like to hop inside a half-whiskey barrel. One of the three Easter Eggers is the culprit. The girls are 25 weeks old. I suspect it was either Fig or Fern, as Piccadilly is still a bit smaller and her comb is not as red and is smaller too. Here is the egg and the Easter Eggers:

    Fern: A sweetie prior to her comb and face reddening

    what a pretty egg. And so BIG for a first egg.

    = I have a scar on my right index finger that is almost like the one on your left. Small world. CONGRATULATIONS on the beautiful egg, that your chicken laid.

    I know. I was pleasantly surprised myself with the size. Thanks for the compliment! Also, regarding the "scar", I actually don't have one. I must have been holding something that creased my finger. lol. [​IMG]
