    I should just show you guys the pictures of my buff orps I got from Ideal also. [​IMG] Two of the girls have been laying for almost two weeks now. Were patiently (not!) waiting for the other three ladies to start laying.

    This is Louie, my buff orpington roo:

    I thought the egg would darken with laying age. So do they stay a pinkish light brown all the time?
