    This is AWESOME, Squeaky!

    Now I'm going to take a moment to share some info because I am a suddenly excited 59 year old curmudeoness:
    At least one of the five flock eggs I put under Sparkle, my recently acquired house silkie, started peeping when I checked for pips. Tomorrow is Day 21. (No external pips yet.)

    I am so excited!

    It's not like it's my first broody or anything, but it IS the only one I've had right in the house... Plus, Sparkle is special.

    Okay, everybody in the flock is special. Miss Sparkle is just specialer. :D

    You may return to your regular programming now. :p
