Yesterday I got my first egg. I was so excited. My oldest hens are not even 6 months yet. The Buffs will be 6 months the 15th and my silkie will be 6 months the 23rd. I went out this am and found another egg. I was so excited I screamed in joy! My husband thought I got hurt and came running. Nope just got my first egg.

Congratulations! It's funny how happy and exited a first egg can make you, isn't it?  :ya  :yesss:

Dragons are a lot like cats. They sleep with one eye open, tail a-twitch, and will rain fiery death down upon you should you disturb them.

Like a kid at Christmas! I saw my other buff Orpington do the submissive squat a few times so I think I will be getting another egg any day now. They have become velcro chickens. The last few days they have been trying to sleep on my back porch. I am keeping them in their coop and run the next few days. They have tried this before and after a few days in the coop and run they started going back in the coop at night. I don't know why they do it. Yesterday I didn't get an egg at all. I swear it was because my chickens would not leave me alone. My husband and I were working on our fence in the yard and the buffs were by my side the whole time.
