    NCSprout,

    Congrats on that first Wellie egg but I'm also very impressed with that Lakenvelder egg. That egg is huge compared to my Lake eggs.

    My girl only started laying last Monday.
    Her eggs appeared late afternoon on these days:


    Monday 1 egg
    Tuesday1 egg
    Wednesday Nothing
    Thursday 1 egg
    Friday 1 egg
    Saturday Nothing

    So she seems to be laying for 2 consecutive days, then having a rest.

    I'm guessing as her body gets going, she'll settle to one a day. Is that what you have experienced with yours?

    Thanks again everybody, I am really proud of her.

    That egg is huge compared to my Lake eggs.

    They are still small eggs, I think maybe the angle of the shot made it look bigger. The lakenvelder eggs don't fill up the cups in my egg carton, but i do like my lakenvelder girls, they've been giving me an egg everyday for at least a month. [​IMG]

    Her laying pattern sounds very normal to me, 4 in a week from one pullet is very good. Kudos to her! [​IMG]

    edited to add: 3 of my girls are also late afternoon layers. The other girl lays in the morning hours.

    To all of our WCNA members, a heads up about the message I've sent about the domain names for the WCNA. The Webs didn't accept WCNA.com, WCNA.net, WCNA.org and anything with WCNA so we are all looking for suggestions from our members and Nate and I will pick a selection of the club domain name and let the members vote.

    Here are a few:

    Welsummers.com
    WelsummersUSA.com
    WelsummersUS.com
    WelsummerCNA.com
    WelsummerCofNA.com
    WCofNA.com
    WelsummerClubUSA.com
    WelsummerClubNA.com


    Your inputs please?
