    Hello fellow chickeneers!

    I thought I'd post a pic of the golden eggs that our Sicilian Butercup is laying! They are the most gorgeous (and delicious) eggs we have ever seen. Very nice light light brown (basically white), small and perfectly shaped.
    I read that SB's only lay about 3 eggs a week, but she is giving us like one a day!
    The big egg on thje left is a store bought free range egg that I pictured for reference.

    Don't you just love the little buttercups? [​IMG] I have a little hen (and her name is "Buttercup"[​IMG]) and she, too, is a good little layer! I've called her eggs a "creamy" color. She is a little flighty and stand-off-ish, but still a sweet girl.

    They're very pretty birds. Even at a younger age. Mine are about 3 months old.
