    Lily dustbathing in the front hall
    "Not gonna lay no egg, nope..not gonna do way"


    "I think I need a wee bit more dirt"


    And Dash who is always afraid she is in trouble for somethin, usually cuz Lily is....
    "I didnt do this, really I didnt...."

    Aw, that's great, Jill! You just send your little freeloader back to her grandmother; her mama-Lexie will whip her into shape, LOL. At least now you know Dash is a GIRL!

    Its hard to believe that a silkie started laying before a barred rock.

    Now that I think about it, I believe Lexie laid later than any of my other Barred Rocks, about 24 weeks. She is a great layer, though. Her eggs are larger and darker than the others, too. Great things come to those who wait, Jill, LOL. (I hope!)

    [​IMG] Looks like Lily just wants to lounge around all day while Dash does the work!! Cute pictures. I've loved watching them grow up.

    I love the picture of her dustbathing, then looking in the flower pot!

    Congrats on Dash's first egg!
