USDA Grade "Tiny"

Gingersnap, our 22 week old golden Campine pullet, laid her first egg today. She is our smallest pullet and we think she is the cutest too.


Here is her little egg next to a large one that one of the Orpingtons laid. She's our only white egg layer. Derek said he's going to have it for breakfast tomorrow morning. He better fry up a couple extra ones or he'll be hungry within an hour!

  2. She is our only white egg layer so it's easy to figure out.

  5. What a lovely little hen! Very beautiful! After a few small eggs, Robyn finally produced an extra large egg! Exciting! Now, if the other girls will get busy, we might not have to get eggs elsewhere!

  8. Gingersnap is a beauty! I've never seen pics of the Golden Campine before. They look like they'd be an excellent addition to any flock! And her eggs look to be a perfect size. :)
