More eggs...

Blondie's first egg was this Thursday, Feb. 10th. It had some little dark specks on the larger end. We only got 2 eggs from her, so far. 2/10 & 2/11. She is already taking a break. I think I know who the slacker is.

Chrissie's first egg was today, Sunday, Feb. 12. It's lighter in color from Blondie's eggs, kind of pinkish. You can really see the color difference below.

Here is a sampling of eggs. Besides colors, you can really see a difference in shapes and sizes. If you look at the detail of this photo, you can see some weights that we wrote on them in grams. Biggest so far is 46 grams from Siouxsie. She as laid everyday so far, eight! Such a good girl.

Week 24 - We have an egg! - February, 5th 2011 - 7:30am PT

The tiny blue egg is from Siouxsie. The brown one is just a dummy egg, so they understood where to lay their eggs, but it is also a good comparison of the size. Because she is new at this whole egg laying thing, it will take awhile for her eggs to get bigger. It's a pretty grayish, blue.

This photo isn't very good, but I wanted to weight it. 1 3/8 ounces. We were expecting Blondie to be the first one to lay, because she is so much bigger than the other two. Siouxsie is actually the bottom of the pecking order and the smallest. YAY!
