First Eggs!

In May, we got some new baby chicks. Yesterday, we had one 2.4 oz brown egg, from one of the Turkens, and a lovely little green egg, from one of the Araucanas. The Turken laid it on the floor (not surprising, since 2.4 oz is really big for a first egg--it probably caught her by surprise), but the green egg was in the nest box. This morning, all three eggs were in the nest box--two more greens and a pinkish brown that could be Araucana or could be Turken.

Here's a pic:
