    I'm impressed! That's a neat idea. (Your photos are really nice, too! It looks like you posed your chickens in some of them!) [​IMG]

    Just a thought... Do you think you could add the breeds of the birds next to their names? If other BYCers use your page as a reference, knowing what breeds those birds are would be very helpful.

    Quote:I bought the egg thingy on ebay. It was $12 (I think).

    Pippa is still being a stinker. But I covered her favorite perch, that was higher than the others, and she's stopped crowing like a rooster.
    Now she just sounds like a giant chicken complaining every once in a while. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the pics. Nice! Sure helps me to figure out who is getting ready to need a nice cozy nest. Only one girl, Della, my Delaware Red is laying now for a couple of months -- even though Theresa is the same breed and I was told the same age -- has a much smaller comb and is not laying. Go figure...

    In a two nest compartment, Della and Theresa sleep and poop in one nest and Della lays in the other. She's a very sweet and clean hen -- likes her hugs and kissesand thanking her for her eggs which she keeps very clean.
