Hi Bodger,
Got the first egg today from the Light Sussex I hatched from your eggs.
It was a really good size, not like usual pullet eggs.

See if you can get a photo of her for me, it would be interesting to see what she's turned out like.

I was going to make a post about duck eggs too. After a break of months, we had our first one yesterday and another one today. Going by the size of the egg, I'd say that it was from one of the Welsh Harlequins. My son bought me a trio back in October for my birthday. They were 12 weeks old when I got them.
