    I had to travel out of town this weekend to my farm down in KY and of course my chickens lay their first 2 eggs. One froze and cracked but the other was just fine. I also got one this morning. I fell like a kid with a new toy...lol...I use some lights and put some cayeene in the water and now they are laying. Thanks for such good advice on the sight. I am holding off the urge for more pullets...lol...3 is enough for now in the setting I have them.

    That is wonderful!!!! It is soo much fun collecting the eggs... hate to hear that one cracked. Time to give them a little layer feed and oyster shell for calcium with that it should thicken the shells up to prevent more cracks. You got an early Christmas gift from the girls!!!!
