    Yes, I have been selling pairs off of calicos left and right all summer long. Let me know how many eggs you want. Take in mind I am down to just 6 gals and 6 guys appx aged 1 yr. they have not let up laying this year at all. Possibly bc I live just off the BlueRidge Parkway. It is cool up here. pm if you like. Those were pix of the babies I have been selling at swaps. 1- 4 months of age.

    It has been wet and cold up here.
    I don't know about others but I have had enough rain. Our creeks are rushing rapids. The ground goes squish and my beans, squash and other vegetables are rotting in the fields.

    My chicks, pullets, roos, hens and roosters are sloshing around in the garden with mud up to their fannies. Today the sun shone. They did not know what that was it has been so long since they have seen it. It feels as if it has rained 40 days and 40 nights.

    Tonight as they were being shut in/locked up.. They looked as if they had been rode hard and put away wet they ran around so much jumping for joy because the sun was shinning (albeit muddy) today. Hope everyone reading this had a beautiful sunny day today and if not I pray tomorrow will be. Very tired and in pain going to bed early tonight. Tomorrow is supposed to be another sunny day and I want to make sure I see it. I have awoke in the clouds every morning for so long I almost forgot what the sun looks like. Here comes the sun is singing in my head.
