We've been waiting for the babies that hatched back in October to lay, hoping for some lovely olive colored eggs and today was finally the day!! Look what we found this afternoon:

I'm really hoping that the tiny brown egg is just a glitch from one of the older hens and not from the other baby, because our goal was all Olive Eggers from that hatch
