We got our first egg from the Copper Black Marans today - it is without doubt, the smallest hen's egg I have ever seen. It's like a Cadbury Mini Egg! Still, they are only 21 weeks old.

Tiny egg

I think we might have scared it out of them. We culled two of the three CB Maran cockerels last night, keeping the biggest and best looking as our new stock cockerel. He has been named Hector (and he has a house! Children of the 60s will understand this).
