    Yesterday, i officially entered the Two Egg a Day Club!

    My younger EE Gracie layed her very first egg. She's just 23 weeks old. It's small and has some marks on it. Searching this forum, it looks like new layers sometimes will have eggs with blood marks on them, so i'm not going to worry. She even layed another egg this morning. So now i have two EE girls giving me the goods. i feel so . . . prosperous!

    Anyhow, wanted to share. Here is Gracie's egg. Does anyone think i should be concerned about those marks?

    Here was Gracie when we first got her, so tiny and scared:

    Here she is now on the right, with her friend Penny on the left. i have a hard time finding her when her head is not down foraging.

    2 eggs a day! I'm in the 15-20 egg a day club. [​IMG] I'm hoping mine will slow down during the winter. I can't give the eggs away fast enough. lol

    A bit of blood on the eggs is normal at first. It'll stop after the first 2-3 eggs.
