Thanks everyone. I got it straight now. I'll certainly add one when space is available again. Since we weren't getting the suspense of the surprise every morning, my hubby said forgot it for now, just get brown eggs. So to make sure, hopefully, that we have enough for the winter, I now have 5 brown egg layers. 5's my limit with the space I have available. Well, I could probably do more if I let them free range the yard more. However, I'm determined to try to keep my grass, so that means limited desert bar to one hour of the evenings and the rest of the time in the chicken lot, which is 23'x23'.
As for hijacking my threads, never worry about that. Like you said, topics get changed during the conversation. It's easy to do, and I do it too, if I'm not careful. I'll never get upset about something like that.
