Our second batch of eggs hatched over the weekend! These were eggs from Laura’s four frizzled cochins’ pens. Out of 16 eggs nine hatched, but the eggs were from young birds and hatchability was questionable. It’s hard to tell yet if any of the birds are frizzles. They are all cute none the less.
They hatched right on time, too. Apparently my husband ordered quail eggs a few months ago and they shipped today.
Our Easter Eggers started laying about a month ago. We get two greenish, one bluish and one considered pink (although it looks brown to me with maybe tiny bit of pink hue in it) from them. But yesterday I found the biggest chicken egg I’ve ever seen. It’s the size of a duck egg, ouch! I hope my chicken does not need stitches. I bet it’s a triple yolker.
20! 17 chicken and 3 duck eggs. All we have are three pullets and one duck, that just started laying a week ago. These girls are working hard!
