    One of my younger girls has been doing the egg squat for about 2-3 weeks and we've all been anxiously waiting to see her start laying. Well, Happy Thanksgiving to us! She layed her first beautiful, light green egg today!! [​IMG] [​IMG]
    I don't have pics yet, dh had to use it to make cornbread, but I was just SO excited to see something other than a brown egg when I'd been trying really hard not to get my hopes up that I'd have a color layer! [​IMG]
    Just had to share!

    *The color is a bit off, but my camera is dying, but it such a pretty green IRL. [​IMG]*
    The other two eggs are from my other two layers, one is a brown layer and the other is a banty.[​IMG]

    Congratulations!!!! How exciting! Our big Thanksgiving treat today was a HUGE brown egg with a double yolk from our Austrolorp. It was so big the egg container top would not close.

    Eggs are fun! [​IMG]

    Thanks! I'll get pics tomorrow, it's the prettiest shade of green, I'm still SO excited over a silly egg! [​IMG]

    Silly, WOW, that's a big egg!! OUCH! [​IMG] I've only got 3 that are currently laying out of 15 girls, and have only gotten one double yolker, ever, but it certainly wasn't THAT big, congrats! [​IMG]
