I have now gathered my 2nd egg. One today and one the 12th, which has been normal for my girls over the past few years. My youngest hen is laying though, so I am not 100% that they are fertile. I haven't seen her mate but after seeing this 2nd egg now, I am convinced she is probably paired. She won't be a year until 5.02.2011, and the oldest male I have will be a year 5.08.2011, but they are dancing the courtship dance. I have her with the dominant male and have been working my tail off to ensure that nothing goes awry. I am not sure if I want to hatch any this year, but it is like an addiction, seems I just have to Here's Penny (the hen laying) Penny's Sire Sorry for the large photos & I really wish I had a photo of Penny's mom, I will keep looking. I'll also add some more photos when time permits. Does anyone else have Golden's or any pheasant's laying?
