My hens are actually starting to LAY and now I've got more eggs than I know what to do with! I cracked open the very first one layed, because I knew for sure it wouldn't be fertile. Say hello and goodbye to what was potentially Fancy's first offspring! D'OH! My daughter wouldn't touch it because I declared it fertile. But my son ate it with gusto. These are purebred silkie babies we are going to be eating!!! I need a bigger bator!!!!
