So after a long journey i finally have my first egg! My first flock of four birds 2 years ago died of heat stroke and my last flock of 6 birds were all killed by my dog after he broke into the coop that i spent a month building. But despite all the disappointment from my previous attempts i finally got my first egg from one of my 6 new birds. Ive raised them since they were a few days old and they are now 6 months. With all the money ive spent on the coop and dog proofing it i could have bought a solid gold egg by now but its worth it. Just thought i would share. Thanks everyone!
