21 week old Easter Egger – “Cutie’s First Eggs”!~

One of the baby hens from our second flock “Cutie” laid her first few eggs this week at 22 weeks old! She is an Easter Egger and we did get her because of the rave reviews on how great a family chicken they make and we were also hoping for that blue or green shaded color egg the breed is known for. She didn’t lay a blue or green egg but a light tan color. We don’t mind. We are proud of her.

She was certainly set on hatching fake and actual eggs into baby chicks.  Anytime we would coax her out of the nesting box so others could lay eggs, she’d puff up really big and growl at us! Since the local feed store just got baby chicks in, we decided to get three. Since there’s a limt on how many adult chickens we can keep, we decided a few of the chicks would be sold when they are older or replace some of our not so friendly and peace keeping hens.
