    We got our first 2 eggs today in 27 degree weather!!! We have 7 hens that we have raised from a day old, our first time! Met them at the end of June. Had to share our happy moment. This community has helped me learn SO MUCH and now I feel like I'm a part it:)[​IMG]

    Thank you for your warm welcome! I do have a question...I read that if there is poop or stringy stuff on my eggs that means my ladies might need to be 'wormed'? I'm a natural gal so doing all I can to avoid the harsh stuff. Only have 7 of them in Nebraska.

    Yes poopy eggs can be a sign of worms. Feed them pumpkin seeds. This is a very light natural wormer.
