Goldie the Vorwerk chicken has been laying for 7 days, the middle row starting from the left is day one, across to day 6. I cant wait to eat them!!

All our chickens are laying now, at the top of the photo are the appenzeller eggs, then the middle row are the Vorwerk eggs, they are a lovely creamy peach colour, and the bottom row are the Silver Campine eggs, they are very similar to the Appenzeller, they are a slightly different colour and a touch slimmer.  The Silver campine has laid 3 double yolkers in a really short time too!  Her eggs got bigger and bigger when she started to lay, and that was why!  None of the other chickens have laid any double yolk eggs, so even though Silvie, the Silver Campine is super timid she is a very special chicken.

Also our Appezellers had their 1st birthday on Monday, Happy birthday Tufty and Whitey!
