  1. I got 5 eggs today!!!!! [​IMG] From my 4 of my hens and a pullet. I don't know which one. i have 6 pullets that are ready to start laying. I'm so eggcited!!! [​IMG] I missed having fresh eggs from my flock. Pretty soon I'll have 11 layers. 5 hens and 6 pullets. At least they'll start paying for their feed. The past few months I had too buy chicken feed and eggs. Yuck!!!! Store bought eggs are the most digusting stuff that I ever eaten.

    I can't wait until it's spring, it'll be easier to collect greens for my birds. They LOVE wild strawberry leaves.

    Plus when it's spring I'm going to buy grass seed and grow grass in the run for the chickens and let it get estalblished before I let the chickens out onto it. They love grass.

    When I have time I going to buy more hay from my feed store to fill the nesting boxes and some for the run.

    Well see yah later. Just wanted too tell you my good news about the eggs. [​IMG]

    Congrats! I was away when my chickens started to lay, unfortunately. I enjoy collecting the eggs- it's allways exciting to find eggs in the nest/

    It sure is eggciting! Congratulations.
    Do you save the pullets eggs for easter crafts after carefully getting the yolk and white out?

  6. Naww. I use them for good eatin' and to sell to help pay for their food. I tried to with Marshmellow's first egg but I couldn't figure how to do it.
