CL-Congrats on the first eggs! I too got my first this week! I got TWO eggs this morning! And the dog didn't eat them this time! If I get two more tomorrow, I can share them with my brother who is visiting. If not, he won't notice the store bought eggs. So both of my NH reds are laying. Can't wait for the Am to lay and the CL's to get some blues in there! The NH eggs are pretty light brown. What shade of brown do the BR's lay? On another note, I gave up the 4 CL roos yesterday to my friends dad. They thought it was funny to invite me to their cookout! Next year I might attend, but not there yet! They said they were delicious. It is amazing how peaceful my chicken run is today. One roo and 13 girls! He is going to be tired tonite! Love the pictures Cheeka, she is such a cutie! I miss my girls when they were that age, well, I miss the good part of when they were that age!
