    We ordered 15 easter eggers in June...5 are now living with a friend at her farm, 5 are living at my school where I teach, and for the first time ever, 5 came home with me! The chicks were suposed to all girls...the other morning...my son's "girl" sang a lovely rendition of "cockle-doodle-doo"! Bella, now called Bello, is living at school. Our neighbors would not have appreciated his wake-up calls like we would! And then to boot...my little Cheo has a bad case of crooked beak! We couldn't believe our luck...crooked beak and a rooster!! I was going to call the company we ordered our chicks from, but what's the point? I't not like we'll trade Bello or Cleo in! Anyway...that's the news from our house! Have a great day!

    I am bummed that we had to bring Bello to school instead ofkeeping him at our house...i love their calls, too! This web site is awesome! I love talking to other "chicken whisperers". (That is what a friend of mine calls me!) Have a good night.
