    Rhodie labored in the nest box for a couple hours, but finally laid her first egg. She stood traumatized (as in the first photo) for five minutes, before starting the egg song. Rhodie is a 23 week old Rhode Island Red.

    Are RIR eggs always pink and speckled like hers, or is it just because it's her first? The eggs in the back are from the BO.

    wont say four, maybe two been getting two every day and soft shelled one every other day, so guessing two newbees. making cookies and icecream for bday. cant wait to see what tomorrow brings. congrats on yours again. she will probably settle into one color soon, first few vary in color. once they get going, you will be able to tell who lays what.
