    Yay! very cute in the midst of all those big ones.! Congrats! Our Buff Orp. has always laid small beige eggs. She's a year old and our best layer.

    OK, six days ago we got our 1st egg (littlest one of course). Next day nothing, then one egg a day for the next 4 days. My question is..........are all eggs from the same hen?

    Yay! My BO girls are about 24 weeks old and all 6 are laying. They are still laying those cute, tiny eggs, as well. They are so yummy!!!

    Do they lay every day, every other day?

    I normally get 3 or 4 eggs a day but yesterday all 6 laid in one day. One was in the nesting box last night around 6:30 and sure enough there was an egg in there. Most days, they are done laying by lunchtime. I've already gotten 3 more today. I am trying to get creative with egg recipes since my family of 4 is having a hard time eating all those eggs. I gave the dentist some yesterday!!!
