When I first got chickens about 4 years ago I bought Minorcas and they lay white eggs, so that's all I got. As time's gone on I've got lots more chickens of different breeds, and they all lay various shades of brown eggs. My minorcas are getting on a bit now so they don't lay as regularly. I haven't had a white egg for a really, really long time, but yesterday and today there was a lovely white egg in the nest! I hadn't realised how much I'd missed them!
Next on the egg list are blue ones!
Now, all my araucanas ( blue egg layers) turned out to be boys, King Bertie is a very happy boy, as all his brothers went to Ms Lottie a couple of days ago (thank you!!) so he now rules the roost, in his incredibly calm way. Ms Lottie has 2 araucana babies and if one or both turn out to be a girl I can have them! I'm waiting with baited breath!
Keep your fingers crossed.
I know the one on the far left looks pink, but it is pure white - honest!
Oh and still bathroomless...
