    whoot whoot thanks chook.. I appreciate that.. since before ya know.. all my chickens will start laying and wont have a clue which eggs go to whom..

    I wanted you if you could to hop on over to the barnveldor thread.. I places some photos up .. to ask if my barnies are the standard and if their single or double lacing.. etc/ good coloring..etc/ since I know really nothing about them

    let me know what you think... would you

    big hugs

    Some of my older hens, I have learned to spot the shapes they lay and id who laid which egg. You may figure it out. I wish I could ID all my eggs. Thought my broody was sitting on my cuckoo's egg but it turned out to be the Jersey girls egg.

    Congratulations. As I am typing this my little Catalina 7mo old keeps going in and out of the nest boxes in the coop. I am hoping today is going to be the day she lays her first egg. Beautiful eggs BTW.

    Very Exciting!
    The barnvelders laid the speckled eggs.
    I think they deserve some congratulations treats [​IMG]

    Isn't that the most exciting thing? I rememeber my first three-egg day. You'd think I laid them myself I was so proud.
    We frequently get three eggs each day and I still get so excited. It's like finding a treasure each afternoon.
