    Our pullets are around 5.5 months old now and I have to say they are the friendliest little "ladies"! Especially now that they are laying. I think they think I am their rooster (even if I'm female)… I give them food, warn them of danger, look out for them – basically everything a rooster might do, except give them babies.

    They sure are good friends, I love the eggs too.
    My hens also think of me the same [​IMG] [​IMG]

    My five girls are all babies now, but I hope that they will one day be wonderful, friendly hens. I love mine already, and am looking forward to the day when they will be sharing their lovely eggs with me as yours do you. [​IMG] Plus I love your egg basket!!

    The egg basket was from Peter Andrews, a store that carries all kinds of home goods here in New York. The woman who was chicken sitting for us while we were away got it at their annual tent sale. I tried to do a search on ebay and on google and came up empty. I'll see if I see any identifying marks underneath and get back to you all if so.

    Thanks, glad you like it, I thought it was really cute of her to buy us a gift like that.
