Hoorah! First egg - naturally, I missed it....

Recommended Posts

Daisy the Maran Cuivre laid her first egg today! She is 23 weeks old and first crouched a week ago.




Of course, I wasn't at home when it happened - we had our first weekend away since getting the chooks and our neighbour closed the Eglu up last night. When we got back tonight I went out with the torch to shut them up and found Big Zee's first solid egg for a week in the nest box and Daisy's egg (40g and a lovely dark brown colour) just outside the Eglu door!


I had them both on toast for tea and they were delicious!
