    Quote:Thank you Sphinx. I will have you know, that I have 13 out of 13 shipped eggs..New Hampshires, that are very viable. I actually candled again tonight. They will hatch on Christmas Eve, or the day before, or both. [​IMG] They were delivered in the cold..in fact it was very cold here when they finally got here..they were delivered on a Sat., got here on Thursday. I only let them sit for 12 hrs. Even though your eggs are that far away, they usually only take 3 days to get here..mine took 5. Soooo, get excited!! Those golden Laced wyandottes are very pretty!

    Quote:Yaaay, let's hope you don't go out tomorrow morning and she's stuck to that nest again. Knocking on wood for you right now. [​IMG] You should post a picture of her. You made her sound adorable while we were talking the other day. They are cute bantams. And broody little stinks. [​IMG]
    My broody started laying again by the time I brought the chicks to you.

    Quote:I know right? She was actually snuggled down more when I first saw her in the nest. She looked so cute with her puffy cheeks and muff, that I just had to get a picture of her. When I came back, she was pretty close, so I stayed and watched. [​IMG]

    First Egg. YESSSSSSSS! Our chicks were hatched the end of May and here 6 1/2 months (205 days) later, a medium beautiful blue egg. We decided not to artificially light the coop and let nature takes it course. We figured it wouldn't be until spring but lo and behold to our wonderful surprise, one of our two easter eggers couldn't hold out any longer. 1- easter egger, 1-redsexlink, 1- cinnamon queen, 1- brown leghorn, and 1- welsummer to get going on the egg laying. Such a breath of fresh air. Cant wait to get home....sooooo excited.[​IMG] If you've been here, you know what I'm talking about.

    I think the store egg is a large. Either way Bunnys first egg was not small. Dotsie is our SLW. Oh and don't mind the take out container I used as a background. I couldn't find anything else in my excitement.

    Wow, that is impressive! First egg? My Ameraucana's first egg was the size of my bantam's eggs. They are cochin bantams, so they are larger than most bantams, but it was pretty small for a LF. She is laying about that size of yours now. And, I like the size of that Wyondottes! Still crossing my fingers for mine to be a girl. Getting prettier every day, what ever "she" is. [​IMG]

    bird man..congrats once again..and that is unusual for the EE's to lay every day like that. My EE that started about a month ago..the one in the pictures, is also doing a great job. She is laying 5 or 6 a week, that's pretty good. I have a white leghorn that lays every day, and a brown one that lays most every day, then will miss one day every couple of weeks. My Little Red is laying every day..she's a sex link, and my little mottled bantam is laying around 5 a week. Still waiting on my Partridge Rock! She is really looking like she's ready, and has squat for me a couple of times..I see her checking out the nest boxes, so, shouldn't be long..I hope. Really interested in the color of that egg.
