    One of my Ameraucana pullets laid her first egg today! [​IMG] It's more of a minty green than a blue - but I'm not complaining! [​IMG]
    Here is the suspected layer:

    It's actually a lot bigger than I thought. Almost as big as a double yolker! [​IMG] I just had to post. It is true. You never know how MAGICAL it is til it happens haha [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Huge first egg. Most likely is a double yolker.

    And congrats! [​IMG] We're still in that seemingly endless wait on our 21 week old pullets...

    That is a beautiful egg from an equally beautiful chicken. I hope you gave her some extra treats!
