    My first and still favorite hen was hatched 3 years ago this Cinco de Mayo, and I was hatched 30 years ago this 5th of May so it is a big year for me and my chicken hobby.

    I hope many others will join along and post plenty of pictures of their feathered friends this year!

    I'm here but pending. I'm setting eggs as soon as I gather enough turkey eggs, then I'll see what space I have when the time comes.

    Glad you have you all! I will try to get a list of participants embedded as soon as I can. Would be helpful to have a second person willing to edit the file as more join in.

    What kind of fowl are you planning to set?

    [​IMG] Thanks for setting this up!!!! Has been a fun event in the past!!! Not too wild and crazy.... just right for me!!!

    Turkeys start to lay after the start date but that is ok. The girls lay when they lay. With the early activity of the ducks, as in breeding behavior, but no eggs yet, WTH, I'm wondering if spring will come early this year...... I can only hope!!!!!
