    I've heard Togo chooks have a history of mercenary tendencies, springing out their kind from urban and rural areas around the states, returning by morning to their flocks looking innocent, even stupid. Some real questionable and honestly disturbing stories of what happened to the flocksters.

    I just googled it, they are wild leeks. I don't remember anyone calling them ramps before. Now I know.

    Ralphie, I cannot tell from the photo if those are pullet eggs or guinea eggs. Guinea eggs are speckly, very hard to crack, and a little more pointy on the pointy end than the typical small-breed chicken egg, like my silkies'. Yours look pointy and the right size but not speckly.

    I even enlisted the help of my eldest daughter, whose eyes are so sharp she can tell my guineas apart, and she is not sure either. Can you crack one? Its shell will be noticeably harder than even the hardest pullet egg if it's a guinea egg.

    I have no confirmed guinea eggs yet.

    The one I know is a guinea the larger of the two small ones. I saw the guinea lay it..

    The other one I just do not know. I had 3 turkey hens and one guinea in a covered pen, I got 3 turkey eggs and that little egg, so either a turkey had a oops and an egg on the same day or the guinea laid it.

    I did not know that either, but I refuse to learn this today, I had already learned my one thing for the day...

    Tell me this again tomorrow, early and I will see if I can learn it.

    Are you allowed to learn more than one tidbit of information a day?
