    Well I have to say we finally got our first egg today !! Pretty sure it was this Barred Rock . Our Black Star and our Barred Rock has been squating and laying around building nests all around the yard .The kids went out and came in screaming that they found an egg inside the run of the coop !! Well here it is ! First of many I hope .

    Quote:Oh yeah I have two barred rocks one is a cuddler and other tolerates it . I have two buff orps too . One loves to cuddle and other tolerates it too.
    And I have a black star who doesnt like to cuddle you can still hold her . All the girls can be held no problem some really like to be held more thats all. At least nobodys pecking at us ![​IMG]
