The cost is quite cheap compared to the smaller bags sold at Cal Ranch or inside the store at IFA. These bags are kept in the warehouse and are not on display. I have found that several items suitable for bird keepers, are not on display in most stores, you have to either 'know' of them or happen to ask the right question to a member of their sales staff. They (IFA) also have what I consider nice oyster shell in the back warehouse as well.

This being the one-hundredth year since Einstein published his Theory of General Relativity in the fall of 1915, I have been reading several articles and tributes regarding this. I wonder if there are any other closet science buff hidden here among the BYC bird keepers? I have read that E=MC2 is the most quoted equation of all time. I certainly admire him and all of those of advanced intellect. I can only pause and wonder what it might be like to be so gifted. Alas, it is not a problem of which I am saddled.

However I am working of a Theory of General Chicken Relativity, of which I suppose I am near to having prepared for publication shortly. I have worked it down to something like this: C=nB2. "C" represents the number of coops, n is to represent the Number of birds/chickens, and of course 2 is the squaring of that value. It is somewhat like Albert's theory in as it is short, compact, and precise. I must give him a big nod in setting the basic stage for this equitation, but the "Chicken Math" is all my own.

I know that some of you are or have been affected by Chicken Math, and I am pleased to offer an elegant equation to remedy this situation. SO, in simple terms, what this means is that the number of coops required for your flock is equal to the (n) number of birds squared. Walhalla… there it is: C=nB2.

So, though I do not expect immediate acceptance of my calculations, I believe in time I shall be proven correct in my efforts to establish in a simple form, the much needed mathematical solution for the problem that has vexed bird keepers for centuries. Perhaps in a hundred years they will be talking of this in much the same way as Alberts contribution to mankind. I have today sent said paper off for peer review.

Another nice day in Cache Valley,

Best to all and your birds,

RJ

This is amazing RJ. I'm using this equation for my breeding plans moving forward.

@Sphinx--long time no see around these parts good to see you are checking in! Pretty boys for sure!

Speaking of marans, I have a new layer, good ole #83, otherwise known as Gypsy. I was pretty happy because this gal is a really beautiful black, One of the few I kept...she gave me the prettiest speckled egg two days in a row, and the speckled eggs are my favorite

Congrats! And that olive egg is a-ma-zing!

My Cuckoo Marans lays a nice spotted egg and I love it.

I'm so glad to hear that. My egg customers love to see the speckled eggs too.

I am excited for my marans and welsummers to start laying. Those speckled eggs just look so cool

Thank You SideWing!

I get a brown egg with dark flicks in it every once in a while, is this as you and bitsy are referring to?

Those top eggs are an example of some really nice speckled eggs. Not my image, but I wish it was.

I'm talking about a darker brown egg with very dark spots. I will have to try to snap a pic tonight.
