Lol, sent aart's high beam hen to the hubs with the caption "It's a little chilly love, fetch me a sweater".
My husband of 24 years has blocked me for the day due to his sense of humor being subpar.
Either that or iv'e awakened something I never ment to.
Either way, i'm beyond amused and will be for a while.:lau
That's great. 24 years and he's still not used to the humor, that must be very amusing for you... That would make me laugh even harder

Oh he's very much accustomed to my sense of humor which is why he can almost block me with his mind at this point.
He married me though, not vice versa so he knows pointy hens and such are the price he has to pay for being my husband and insisting I needed a smart phone.
Iv'e got the thing so I use it....for evil and ordering pizza.
He did insist after all.;)

Hi, I'm pretty new to chickens and I have a couple questions. Firstly how can I tell if my hens are pregnant? I have a rooster in the herd but I'm not sure if the the hens are old enough yet. How would I know when they are old enough and what do I do if they have twins? Or do they always have multiple?
I can’t believe you asked that question without first getting an ultrasound done. :lol:

Just kidding of course. You just made my day.

We all start somewhere. Keep reading an posting questions. This is great site to learn anything you need to know about birthing chickens. :D

Two methods I know of.
A. put pickle relish on strawberry ice cream, if she eats it, she's knocked up.
B. Tell her she still looks beautiful, if she cries for more than two minutes, she's knocked up.
