Bert Sr was a frog.
Bert Jr is a toad
I have something weird going on. Yesterday I got 5 eggs from 4 Creamettes. Today I got 6 eggs from the same 4.
The other 3 gave me one each day.
The pens and coops are side by side with a common wall. The common wall is OSB so the birds cannot see each other. I even went into the pen to see if the hens were tunneling under the wall. They are not, unless they are covering the tunnel entrance.
Just got the shipping notice! all set up and ready! just putting in some thermometers to get the lights set then i will be putting a layer of paper towels on top of the chips. I am excited!!
Also my tomatoes and peppers are thriving! wohoo! about ready to thin them down. probably ready to pot them in a week.
Ralphie, I suspect that those hens have heard your grumbling about all the male chicks and are attempting to give you more eggs to improve upon the female numbers? If not that then Judy is tricking you by putting eggs in there when you are not looking..
If you were successful in getting those Greenfire Farms chick prices it would not matter what sex they were.
