    I went out to feed the chickens and my DH pen was wide open, just flapping in the wind. His rooster was just sitting there waiting for someone to let him back in but his 2 girls are MIA. I guess it might be time to give the new incubator a try. My DH only has 2 roosters and one hen now.

    By any chance would you have some eggs in the spring? Oh, by the way the girls came home yesterday. I guess they just went for a walk. For some reason they do not lay eggs. They might be older. We got them at the local feed store last spring and they were already full grow.

    Glad to hear the girls are ok. I know if any of mine came up missing I would call out the national guard. How quickly and how much we bond and become so attached to them!!!
