    And it's perfect!!!!! HoneyBear's 21 weeks old and layed it out in the pen. My daughter was feeding the girls/boys some Super Worms and she saw HB pushing it around so she brought it in to me. Lord, you'd thought I was a new grandma!!

    Pics to come

    ETA: Now thinking about it, it probably wasn't HB since she's an EE and the egg was light brown. So probably my BR's or RIR's. Either way I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOO excited!!!!

    I found a volume of books from 1910....and bought them for three dollors...yes the whole set...for three dollars....about a week ago at an estate sell...low and behold the are called Books of Knowledge...and surprise, surprise...the first book I opened up...had a whole chapter on Birds of Service...THE CHICKEN!!!!!!With all these wonderful prints of the different types of Chickens and eggs and all the good things chickens provide to folks....I know I have never expected to enjoy these animals like I have....they are just a joy....They are just about 2 m/2 w's old....and they killed a snake yesterday...a small one ....I wouldn't kill it myself....but they are like the yard guards....So when my first egg comes....have mercy ...I am going to be so very happy:)

    Quote:I have a set of 'The Book of Knowledge'. Mine are copyright 1963 though, but it lists all the copyrights back to 1910! What volume did you find that, I'd like to see how the '63 version compares.
