I like your avatar, are the four eggs in the bottom row Easter Egger eggs? Some of those EE's sure pop out big eggs!
Nice that you have had success doing it this way, so many ways to raise chicks. Yes those are our EE eggs. Ok I guess I should correct myself. Two our are EE and two are offspring of our BO x Crosses. Little one the friekdiest of our flock lays a huge egg.
Will have to dig up a pic. Look the magic of the Internet you don't have to wait.
Just a hijack warning....
Little One's Egg
Our five EE eggs, our original flock.
Taking a nap after eating some crickets and water. She was ill after shipment, like a drunken sailor. Didn't think she would live. Couldn't hold herself up, sit-up nothing.
She and I have a very special and tight relationship. Whenever I am out with the flock she pesters me for pets and such. Pulls on my shirt and often jumps up to be held.
And now back to the regularly scheduled MHP thread.
, glad I am among those that talk chicken and understand.Edited by COChix - 3/29/16 at 9:39pm
