We got our first egg today! It’s only been four and a half months since we brought the chicks home, so I wasn’t expecting eggs until early November, but Drew went to let them out this afternoon and there she was: a pale blue beauty. A little thing (they are bantams, after all), but it’ll make a nice treat fried up on some toast.

The blue color tells me it was an Easter Egger who laid it, either Red or Mo.

I have no reason to think this is true, but I suspect Mo, due to her blue/gray feathering. I think Red will give us pink eggs. With this breed, they could end up being a pale green, too. Are you getting why they’re called Easter Eggers?

Woo hoo for eggs!
