Bradselig - the silkies are adorable. This is my first year to have them. One of my girls started laying 3 weeks ago and has not missed a day. I wonder when that will let up... They aren't supposed to be great layers, right? Old salt- I love that you quarantined your bird for 47 miles. Made me literally laugh out loud. I hope you feel better. Summer colds are the worst. Glad you guys had fun yesterday! I'm Sorry I missed it! I was putting together a fall order from the hatchery on my break in the office today. That way i'd have new layers first thing in the spring, right? And I really want buff Brahma hens. I have a problem.
