3rd ASugust, guess when i went on holiday

2nd August.

Never mind, my neice and nephew planted a rubber egg and when I came home I ran round the garde squeling until dh said thats rubber you divvy.

They are sat on the side, shall have them for brekkie tommorow. My clever clever stripey.

I know people who have egg spread sheets hmm.

Yay for first egg I don't think the excitement of finding one in the nest box ever goes away.

WE have a spreadsheet - the man at the farm told ds that his one would lay about 300 a year - he wants to know if he is right. In his defence he is only 5.

Spreadsheets? You loons. grin

For your entertainment, I've just weighed 4 of todays eggs by my old girls (ie. they're 18 months old). 1st (brown) is bang on 75g, 2nd (brown) is just shy of 75g, 3rd (speckled) is about 65g and the little white one is just over 50g.

Little pullet eggs are lovely. smile I'll have some more in about 9 weeks when this years first chicks start laying!

we have only had them a few weeks, and ds1 is still checking the hen house 10 times a day for eggs, I am sure the spreadsheeet won't last long....

my 38g ones are from the oldest hen, who is about 4. the other two we got at pol 3 weeks ago.

I've only had my chickens for two weeks, was told they were 16 weeks old so we were not expecting to get any eggs for ages yet, todays tiny egg was a lovely suprise.
