    I know we have 3 girls laying but so far we never EVER go more than one egg in a day.
    Until today that is.........forst time i reached into the nest box and found more than one egg [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Won't be long now, we'll be givin them givin them i say givin them away by the dozen [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Our breeder told me that chickens's eggs are as different as the girl layin them. I never had a chance to discrene that till now. As you can see, 3 different girls no doubt.There is the large egg and then you can see that each small one is a different shade of brown(?).

    Congrats! I can't even describe the expression on my face when I got my first egg...
    I get that expression evertime one of my girls lays her first egg! It's so exciting!

    Quote:Hi MissPrissy, our avatar pic is a chicken made of wire. I found it out in the yard when we moved into this house this past fall. That is our first egg on it's back.
    That chicken is actually a joke twixt Janet and I.We give our girls cracked corn twice a day and we have narrowed the chore down to jist calling it "crack the girls". Sooooo..of course that took off into a joke that our girls need their "crack" fix every day. I left that wire chicken laying in the yard untill after we had gotten our girls( she had never seen it) and one day when Janet came home form work i told her.."baby, i got some bad news 'bout one o' yer girls". I told her that we have been giving the girls too much crack and as a result....one became .."wired out" and i then showed her the wire chicken.. [​IMG]
    Guess ya had be there. And ther ya have the story behind our "wired" chicken avatar. [​IMG]

    Those 3 are actually our first clutch.We know that we have 3 girls layin but we allways only get one egg every other day. I guess this now means that we're off and runin'.
