    So after months of no eggs (24 weeks) we have eggs. Yesterday I got 4 eggs all in the nesting box!!!![​IMG]

    One major source of confusion for me. I did not thin k I had an Easter Egger in the group. [​IMG]

    But I got home and find 3 eggs. 2 brown and one green egg. (found One in the morning, alone)

    Here is the flock:

    5 RIRs
    1 GLW
    1 SLA
    3 SPRs

    So which is the Easter Egger. (not that I am complaining) [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] What a cool surprise!!! [​IMG]

    Not on hand. But the SLW and the SLA are dead on per other posts.... Not that that is any more convincing....

    The GLW has a slenderer build, with slight muffs. Not nearly like the araucana, but little puffed out (if that makes any sense). And has dark grey feet/legs.

    Will post pics later.... And then we can confirm my ignorance [​IMG]

    The SLA looks pretty text-book.... But will see....

    a GLW should not have grey legs, they should have light yellow...Thats probably your Easter Egger! [​IMG]
