The "Little" girls are 25 weeks old this week. They should all start laying any day now.
...and I think that one of them laid their first egg yesterday! Check it out:
The egg on the left is the mystery laid egg, the egg on the right is for comparison. The egg on the right is from my Dominque, Pepper, who lays small brown speckled eggs. The new egg on the left is light brown and very small...bantam size small.
Since all of my new girls will be laying brown eggs...I have NO IDEA to whom this one belongs. I have a feeling this will be the reality of it going forward, but because of the fact that we will soon be overwhelmed with all the eggs they will be producing, I don't care! However, I am still bummed that my cuckoo marans turned out to be a rooster, I so want some chocolate brown eggs. On the bright side, it gives me an excuse to get a couple chicks next year! (shhhh, don't tell the Hubs)
