I can't take credit for hatching the pencil..I did get eggs from him, but they were a mess, didn't get the second ones sent..P.O.? Soo, he sent me chicks..remember that mess a while back? It was so nice of him to just go ahead and send me his chicks. They are pretty. My girl is getting big fast! My husband and I were just out there today looking at her. She's going to be a big girl. Not sure she is going to catch up to my BO though! Man she is huge! She will be going back to Hector soon. I had her first, then Hector, then me..lol..now Hector wants her back when I am getting close to having another pullet start laying..the ones I hatched. My NH is getting big, my black EE..yes, I am thinking girl again, even with that pretty tail, then my Speckled Sussex will be laying this summer. The old girls are going..not even that old, and the new coming in. I want to keep my Miss Piggy, the white leghorn. She's a good hen. Doesn't bother anyone. Maybe shoo a newbie away, but doesn't pick on them. I like my red sexlink too..she will be one of the last to go. I may keep one of my barnyard mixes that I have in the bator, they will make great layers, sex link type of birds.
