    Finally my babies are laying. We got EE'slike the first week in April and they were 3 days old. I just went out to shut the coop for the night and in the nest box I found these! Sure is nice and green huh [​IMG] The white one is from my 3 year old that hasn't laid in a while. I believe she was molting.

    Nice egg, nice color-------------

    congrats! You EE's first egg looks like a pretty large one for a first egg too! Pretty.


    When my chickens began laying, I was so proud of them, you would think I did it myself. Lol

    Congrats! Love the color. I hope to hatch out some green or blue egg layers this spring to mix in with my brown eggs.

    yeah...I have 3 that are 22 weeks....I pray they lay in the next few weeks and that winter doesn't cause them to wait...

    would love to have the green eggs and ham theme in my kitchen!
