Egads--lots of reading to catch up on. Aretha, our 19-week old cream legbar has laid 5 eggs in her first week. We couldn't be more proud of her hard work. The eggs are still small though, so I hope they get bigger soon. Here's a picture of her first 4 eggs, with our last grocery store egg in the carton for comparison. She's growing into being a very beautiful girl--I'll post some pictures of her when she stands still. irtehun: Charlie's a very handsome bird. Nicely done! toofast: Great looking coop! Looks like you've got grass growing in it--How do you keep anything green growing in it?
