    Thank you [​IMG] They are staying on the table until hubby comes home so he can see why every week for the past 5 months we have been spending all that money on feed [​IMG] It can only get better 75% of my flock are egg laying hens [​IMG]

    I am so happy. I was happy since it was only my runner duck laying and the cochins on and off. Then my pekin hen started and the cochins continued and I knew the turken was working on one for a couple days and she laid that torpedo one [​IMG] Then I saw my daughters fave NH red Grouchy getting off the nest and there was another!! YAY!!! Keep going girls!! LOL [​IMG]

    You know, it seems like when I stop fretting about the eggs...that's when they start back up again. Whoda thunk it?
