From Prettie, my first chicken, in July 2004
We just got it from our Ameracaunas today!
The brown one is from our Gold Sex Links, who started laying late last year. We don't have a picture of their first egg.
Maybe these will come through this time. I put mine in with some other eggs and they look so tiny
YEA - it finally happened!!
First one came just after July 4th, and didn't even register as "small" on my egg scale!
Where I find them... (and yes, the golfballs worked!)
Using up the store-bought farm eggs (the lower five) and filling in with my own! I've since filled this carton twice!
I think collecting eggs is one of my favorite daily chores!
Oh, and some of my girls started around 17/18 weeks, and the rest were laying by 24. And yes, they've been on layer from roughly 17 weeks.
These are my very first eggs as of 8/6/07 my girls were 19 weeks old they will be 20 wks old tomorrow
Here are some of the girls i don't know which ones laid them
this is from my wheaten ameracuanas....
every egg they lay is this color!!!
Our first egg came today, from Eunice, a red sex-link chicken!
My wife is holding the egg; we were both thrilled.
Here's a picture of our first egg that we got on July 8th of this year. Once we found our first egg, we switched the girls to egg laying feed. We've always had oyster shell available to them to feed at will. Our girls (RIW & NHR) who were born March 10th, were two days shy of 4 months old when we found our first egg. I can't tell you though which breed gave us that first egg.
