On Sunday, October 27th 2013,  I found our first egg from the Golden Comets that we raised from chicks this summer!  I was so excited!  It wasn't in a nest box, but that is ok, we will eventually get them laying in them.

Our First Egg!
 Our first egg was a beautiful terra-cota color, and perfectly shaped.  It was bigger than what I was expecting too. 

Eggs #1 & #2

On Monday, I found another one and I think it is from a different girl!  The shape is a little different, and the color isn't even.  It actually looked like you could see inside the egg! 

Today, I found two soft-shelled eggs in the coop, which is pretty normal for new layers from what I have read.  I am going to start providing them with crushed egg shells for the added calcium they need to produce strong eggs! 

It has taken awhile, but at twenty-two and a half weeks, we finally have our first eggs!  Everyone else should start laying in the next few weeks, and I will have plenty of eggs to share!

  1. Hooray! Congrats on the eggs. They really are pretty good sized for pullet eggs. And yes, when they are young they're still working out the kinks in their reproductive system so soft shells and other anomalies do happen from time to time. No cause for concern unless it becomes a pattern. Good idea on giving them crushed egg shells!


I welcome your comments, and I enjoy reading each and every one! Thank you for joining us on our journey!
