    Not that anyone but me cares, but since nobody in this house really cares either, I just had to say that I got my first egg from the speckled sussexes today (I believe they are like 22-23 wks?). Woo hoo!

    And the campine hen (same age, now in same pen) has upsized her eggs to about Medium, and I can see the little fertilization thingamajiggie in 'em so evidently Pants has figured out his job as well. (I am sure it is Pants, b/c Itchy is now not allowed anywhere near the hens, poor thing [although he is such a hormonal nutcase I am sure the hens are glad not to have him near them]. This weekend I need to build a divider so I can give him a few of the hens for his own, otherwise I'm afraid he will just get madder and madder til he has it out with Pants... and I doubt that Itchy would win)

    It is nice to have fully functional chickens <g>
