    My girls are getting old enough to lay eggs. I'll probably have my first one within a few weeks. I want you all to guess who will lay the first egg. Hopefully I'll be able to identify who lays it......
    But go and ahead and guess. Also be aware the Anconas are about a week older than the others
    These are my girls;
    Name Breed
    Cheri Magpie
    Ree Khaki Campbell
    Mae Khaki Campbell
    Jasper Black Runner
    Shirley Ancona
    Daffodil Ancona

    My first Runner egg was when they were 16 weeks, 4 days old. Over the next 6 weeks, everyone started laying.

    I vote for the smallest hen to lay first. Mine started laying in size order from smallest to largest. All hatched at the same time. All were the same breed. They hatched in May and started laying in December. I had some crazy long months of duck pool party/hop on top/which hen can hold the most ducks.

    For some reason I think one of the KCs will lay first. I'm probably completely wrong! I wonder when they'll start. Can't wait!!! Don't forget to post a pic of the first egg ... pleeeeeease [​IMG]
