Here are my Welsummer's first eggs. They are about 5 months old. I thought they were at least a month away from laying. However, they have been pretty noisy lately. I guess they were telling everyone they were getting ready. Some are dark and some are pretty light. I thought I read somewhere that some eggs start out light and then darken up....like they are still working on the paint. Is this the case? I have not been home from work yet, so I haven't seen them in person.
