    Hurray! [​IMG]

    One of our 20 week old Lavender Orpington pullets was climbing out of the nest box this morning when I went to get my White Leghorn's one daily egg (two layers & one just hatched chicks so she's not laying yet). I was worried that she was in there messing around with Snow White's egg. Then I saw it - the cutest little brown pullet egg!

    I am so jealous! I live in Fredericksburg and have 7 lavender orpingtons (hinkjc line) that are right at 40 weeks old! I just got my first two eggs yesterday and another two eggs today. It was such a long wait! I have never been so happy about eggs in my life. But... I thought that they looked very light in color... Now seeing yours... I really think that they are light in color...

    My EE's eggs didn't make it, so I let her hatch out some Welsummer and Ameraucana chicks - we ended up with 2 Wellies and 1 AM. She's happy to be a momma.

    Welcome and congrats on the eggs! It could be that mine just appears to be darker due to lighting/iphone.
