    I posted the pic under First Eggs, but I just had to brag about my babies! All 6 little girls in the baby pen laid today, one had laid one egg last week or so but none since. Today all 6 little girls laid!!! There are 5 Sizzle/Frizzle girls and one young Silkie lady.

    ETA: They all laid on the coldest day of the year!

    I wish I knew who laid which eggs but I'm sure not going to say I don't want them! I'm going to check them in the morning and see if they are fertile! My little Silkie cross roo is in the pen with them, they all hatched together.

    If they are fertile then in March I might let them hatch if they go broody!
