    Finally!!!! Yeah ! My one copper maran started laying six days ago. Five eggs in six days is pretty good. Started left to right. So for all those who were told your chicken will lay any day or real soon......It does happen, when their ready. I really like those dark brown eggs.

    She is a pretty consistant layer so far. Only one day off since she started laying. I can't wait for the other one to start (about 3 weeks younger) Im hoping she might be a little darker as she has feathers on both her legs. Thanks for all the compliments!
