    Got a huge batch just coming out of the shell today....mostly whites this time though and a few blacks. The hens are picking up laying and up to just over a dozen eggs a day. Fertility is improving. Yayyy The weatherman is hoping it warms up finally next week. Daytime temps are only in the 30's and maybe some snow yet this weekend. Going to weed out the PQ ones for the huge April 10th Waverly swap. Hopefully I can start shipping soon.
