  10. Quote:thanks! i really really hope so too... she brings it up everytime when she's "cranky" and talks about my priorities (... i know the way i went about getting chicken was a bit on the shady side but what i can i say... i like chickens... i sorta pop the chicken question while she was falling asleep and she said "yeah" ...seemed like a great idea at the time)

    i got my day-old pullets in mid june... so from what i have read on BYC they should be laying real soon right? i better get those nest boxes in fast... wish me luck
