My 9 standard hens are 22 weeks and coming along very well. Today we had 5 eggs and our first green easter egg. My son was doing cartwheels from excitement. As a reward for their hard work the chickies got an ear of corn and a small watermellon. They were thrilled!!! One of our farmstands had the mellon in the picture for $1. They are not seedless but they are so sweet. Everyone up here is so spoiled by seedless melons that no one wants the ones with seeds anymore. That's ok. I can knock a tin can off a rock at 10 feet with a watermellon seed.
