I hatched these eggs from a local farmer in May 2014. I produced 4 healthy chicks. I hope to have my own eggs this spring. I lost one hen to a fox attack 6 weeks ago. He also wounded my rooster who is recovering. We have secured our coop and lock them up at night. They are very active. I have to handle them a lot to keep them tame. No eggs yet but hope to see one soon.
