Good to hear
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

Yay! Mine are both at 19 1/2 weeks and seem to be hens even though they both exhibited signs to the contrary when they were younger. One had three ridges in her comb and apparent wattles from 2 weeks of age. She also had a puffball tail which some said was a sign of a rooster. Both had red combs (but interesting, they would oscillate back and forth to a more salmon color then back to red.) But they will be 20 weeks old on Saturday and have no saddle feathers and no hackles. So I am pretty certain they are hens.

So Clara laid her first egg yesterday, and a second today.  Her sister (and yes, they are both girls) is also now squatting so I expect some egss from her soon as well.  What's your update, alang?  BTW - Clara's comb doubled in size the week before she started laying.

Still tiny comb and no eggs evident but she definitely seems to be a hen. My other breeds have just started laying on past couple weeks. I'm assuming I'll see an egg soon...
