Our Light Sussex's combs are turning a nice shade of red and one laid her 1st egg after the winter break yesterday. Our 5 year old Bluebell also decided to lay an egg and boy didn't we all know about it!
The hybrid layers just looked at her as if to say " get over it, we can do this every day" then scuttled out of the way in case she decided to celebrate further by beating someone up

Well done, Rick.

One of my CLBs has started to lay very large eggs, they really are obliging girls.

My first CLB laid no more than a few eggs over her life time, and the second one the same. Lucy and (nosey) Parker are on a different planet as far as egg laying is concerned. 3 or 4 each a week each, and they do look pretty in a box with dusky purple, brown cream and white eggs.

What lays the dusky purple ones Valerie?
Chickens are a girl's best friend (though diamonds would be nice too!)

Some of the Croads lay the purple ones, officially "plum" coloured. Mostly though they lay brown.
