And yes, assuming I hatch my cayugas in a few days, I am done buying eggs. Time for the next stage... Growing out all my many babies!


Interesting.  I wonder why mine are early though.

That's great news!!!! Take it slow from here on out.  But you've done chickens so you'll be alright.  It's just much slower than them.
