    Still no eggs. My husband has seen him mating the hens a few times. My son thought he heard him try to crow awhile back...then nothing. So, I got home from vacation last night to a baby chick (yay!)...heard Schmelvis doing a pathetically quiet crow at 4am...and the little chick has fuzzy legs/feet, black skin, 5 toes...a baby Schmelv !!!

    So, Schmelvis is officially a ROOSTER!
