My two NH pullets, Penny and Lucy, are from Ideal. Lucy has this huge floppy comb, so I was expecting her egg any day now. I have 18 young pullets and 2 of them have been laying for a couple of weeks, both Barred Rocks (Hawkeye's daughters). Lucy is #3 of the 18 to start up. Look at what a nice egg! The color reminds me of a Delaware egg a bit.

Yay, Speckled Hen! I love my NH Reds - I only have two - Fred and George (Weasley, of course). They lay like gangbusters and are so lovely to look at.

That is one nice egg.

You have to have your pics on an online photo hosting site first, like www.photobucket.com. Then you can upload them from there.
I have lots of little pullet eggs from my younger girls, but Lucy's really amazed me. She didn't lay today, so I expect she will tomorrow.

All of my first eggs are so tiny. What am I doing wrong?

Perhaps I need to let them free range more or give them more greens.
