    That is a funny story. These creatures are a never ending source of entertainment. I love the way your coops are tied together with the same color. Forgetful? When I leave my kitchen, and head to the bedroom, by the time I get there, I forget why I was going there. Or, I'll leave the bedroom with something in my hand. By the time I get to the kitchen, I've lost it. And we live in a small house!!! I swear my hall way has a giant black hole that sucks both thoughts and things into an eternal void.

    You asked about my LavOrps on the egg thread, and I didn't want to overload that thread, so I thought I'd add some here:

    I hatched these the last week of April.... 9 full lavender and 1 black/lav split. Ended up with 3 male, 7 female. The black/lav split is a female.
    Here are a few pics. Enjoy! I'm anxiously awaiting eggs from them!

    WV: awesome stats on gender! And I'm jumping through hoops to tweak my hatches to yield good percentages!

    You can't really control gender, can you? Just hatch more! :D

    I always heard no more than one roo to less than 10 hens, but with LOs, I was reading that they aren't nearly as aggressive with the hens and each other, and multiple roos are not as much problem. I would really like to keep all 3 of mine, maybe I'm just grasping...
