1st egg
« on: December 03, 2013, 14:20 »
My little wyandotte laid her 1st egg today.  :closedeyes:

I didnt think we would get any this year (we hatched her 21/5/13) but literally in the last 2-3 days her face comb and wattles have gone really red.
Still one to go but her face isnt as dark red as this one.

They are funny little birds. Whenever one of my other chickens is in the nest box, both the wyandottes stand on the tree stump outside on guard, and they do the announcement when the egg has been laid.
They are 1st in at night and last out in the morning.

Its nice to go full circle from hatching her from an egg to her laying her 1st egg.

It sure is! You must be dead proud of your girl.  Hasn't she a name?  If not, you must get her one asap  :)

How many of you to share said egg?  In our house there were three of us  :D

We dont name our chickens anymore, only the first ones had proper names. 
After that the childrens choice of names got so ridiculous, there was no way I was calling their names out.

The said egg is being taken to School as my son has food tech this week and he wants that one.

On the subject of food tech, my daughter is doing it as one of her GCSE choices and she took an egg in which was a double yolker. Her friends squealed in disgust and thought it was alienated.
One of her friends also asked where do ducks and parrots come from, and they couldnt believe they also come from eggs  ???
