    Very cool! I hatched great grandbabies of my original Narragansetts this spring. But now I am selling all the birds from that line. [​IMG]

    I think I took pics of all of my hens first eggs...lol But that very first definitely is the most eggsciting!!!

    lol And now you're thinking...I can't wait to incubate my own eggs!!!! 17 weeks, wow. I think mine were 22 or so. I'm pretty sure they were over 20. I'm going to have to go back and do the math and figure it out for sure. [​IMG]

    My silkies lay white eggs. My silkie EE mix laid brown. She was laying one a day when she first started laying, and now she's stopped. :( I think my chickens are on strike. 5 eggs a day from at least 12 hens.
