It's really hard to resist, but no babies allowed until next month.:barnie 

 

Good luck with all the broken legs (!) going about. Do they usually recover?

This is my first broken leg in the 6 years I've had a flock, so I'm not sure! Luckily it looks like a clean break with no complication (not compound and I didn't have to set it) and she is a young healthy pullet. I'm hopeful she will pull through, but will cull of she starts going down hill. For now she is eating and drinking, clear eyes and very responsive. She is getting around using the splint and her wings to balance, so she is just stuck in isolation for the next couple weeks!

I really like my barred being layers through about anything but had more of them
than the others and was not giving up my EE group.
That makes sense. I wont be adding anymore, i have my limir now. Someday i will get some breeds to add some colorful eggs.
FUI. No guarantee u wll get blue or green from the ER. My EE lay green, pink and brown.
Oh well.

I've been looking up clear plastic tarps. They are really expensive. Where have people found some good ones for a decent price? I don't mind paying for quality but $180 seems ridiculous for a 10 x 12 park.

That white egg looks pretty darn BIG.  Is that from one of your project birds?   Did you happen to weigh it? 

 

The egg inside and egg we had before was a fully formed egg inside of the huge egg, yolk and all in both.  Only had that happen once though in the 5+ years we have had chickens.  

 

The white egg is one of the parent stock birds of my project birds.  She is 3 years old and still rarely ever takes days off of laying eggs and lays massive eggs.  What people have said about hatching over sized eggs is true, the hatch rate certainly suffers.  I only had 6 or 7 of the 10 eggs set hatch from this bird on my last set.  Her off spring on the other hand had 12 for 12 large blue eggs hatch however.  Some of my project girls are laying eggs that rival hers now but not all, most are just large not XL blue eggs.

They certainly are!  My broody hen even warns my dog to keep her distance from the chicks!  She is doing a great job raising her little ones just like yours is.

 

That is a very pretty hen, is that a Welsummer?

My husband brought home a large one from a worksite. I am not sure what it was used for initially but he rescued it from the dumpster. It is large enough to cover a carport frame and it has a criss cross structure for support so it is very strong.
