    I haven't washed them yet, but it's so exciting! I have a BBW and a BBB. Evidently one of them has laid twice, but I just saw them today. I got them both as one day old chicks June 5th, 2013 and learned later that this breed is only meant for meat. At nearly 8 months old they are both healthy and active and now giving me eggs! I thought that if I could keep them "on a diet" , I might start getting eggs from them around March or so...this was so unexpected...and thrilling!

    That is so exciting. I keep looking in my coops hoping for Turkey eggs. I have nars. I got them in August. I did get a mills fleur d'unccle egg today. Very first one from her. I hope her sister starts soon. Yippy! Spring is almost here!

    Mine too. It's very long... My husband is picking me up another pen so I can get some more babies. Hopefully we can get it set by next weekend. :fl
