    Depending on the breed, it could be any day now. I remember last year about this time, when we had gotten our first chooks the beginning of May. I was just about ready to start squeezing eggs out of them.

    Just take a deep breath and be patient. [​IMG]

    Quote:YES! Got our chicks beginning of eggs yet. Every day that goes by, DH asks if I've tried squeezing them?! [​IMG] It is SO hard to be patient. Freeloaders. All of 'em.

    Ahhh... But when you crack open that first egg, see the golden orange yolk and firm albumen, and fry it up over-medium and eat it with toast slathered in home-made strawberry jam, you'll be amazed at how much better they are than those white things they call eggs at the grocery store.​
