    My flock started laying last week. The first eggs come from my BR Pebbles.

    I have an EE named Runt and there was some discussion on whether she was a boy or girl. Two days ago I saw Runt sitting in a nesting box which was strange since the flock was out and about. I checked back 40 min later and there was a warm light brown egg! So happy! I was sure it would of been my other EE Spaz since she is older. Im ok that Runt lays brown eggs they all taste the same :)

    I have 7 hens total 4 of them EEs its going to be fun the see what color eggs we get. Take care

    Yay Runt! Love the light brown egg! My RSL lay dark brown eggs and I get white eggs from the leghorns. Some of my sister-in-law's chickens lay green eggs. Good luck!
