The Babies are Starting to Lay
Ron found the below egg in the run when we went out to do the yard work. It is really dark brown and speckled. I'm sure one of the 12 babies laid it, they are almost 5 months old and are getting to the correct age to lay. We have one that has a bigger comb and is a little larger than the others even tho they are the same age. My daughter Renee's pullets have also started to lay and they are the same age as ours; she has a couple different breeds and all my babies are DeKalb Amber Links. She sent me a picture the other day of an egg she found in her run and it is only about 1/3 the size of this one. It is also very dark brown and had speckles, their first eggs will vary in size.
