    Quote:Am sure Pinks will respond, but am pretty sure that is a Wellie egg under the girl. Eggs are terribly difficult to photograph and get the proper color to show on everyones puter screen. Saw a picture the other day, maybe on this thread, where someone had photographed their eggs inside a terracotta pot giving us a great representation of color as we all know that color and can evaluate the eggs accordingly.

    Pinks, I've a girl who does the same thing, cops the same attitude in her nest box, hackles go up and I get the warning screech.....don't put your hands under me!!!!! I usually leave her alone to do her thing as right now those are eating eggs. Hatching eggs are a whole different ballgame:)

    Quote:Yes that is a Welsummer egg...I was inside of a galvanized metal structure and I used my flash inside that structure to take the picture because it was a little dark in the nest box area. Ever used a flash inside of a shiny metal building...a small shiny metal building? You get lots of glare and lots of flash. [​IMG]

    Here is that egg in the second row from the left, second egg from the front. That row is all Welsummer eggs.
