    After waiting 21 weeks and 1 day, I was pleased to find 2 eggs today. 1 small and one large. [​IMG] My Americana, Liz (as in Liz Taylor ) did the deed. I am so proud of her! Both eggs are a lovely shade of blueish-green. Now, if the other 13 would start earning their keep we could have omelets for dinner![​IMG]

    Quote:Thanks! I see you have some Golden Comets. Do you recall if they lay earlier than others? The reason I ask because brother report 3 on Tuesday and ever since. He has 6 GC's that were hatched out 5 weeks later than my girls. I immediately thought, "that's not fair!" but then congratulated him. I have 1 RIR, 6 BO's, 2 BR's, 2 Americana's and 3 Calf. Whites. Wonder who will lay next!
