one of the new girls has started to lay eggs. i think its flo. she was acting weird(more so than usual) the other day. although the new girls are suppose to be copper marans, one of them (flo) looks like she’s half black australorp and half copper maran. the eggs are suppose to be a dark reddish burgundy. maybe she just needs to get into the swing of things…or maybe her half and half breed lays this colored egg. either way, since its her first attempt at laying, they are not too bad. i assume the eggs will get larger as they get older. she did miss the nesting box and the egg on the left is cracked on the bottom.
