    Well, I'm fully submerged into chicken-mania.... building my brooder, baby chicks due to arrive next Tuesday, and two full grown silkies and a cuckoo maran roo in my garage happying croaking out little songs and eating treats. And then, I get this telephone call from my son, "MOM the silkies laid an egg in the baby pool. Isn't that great??!" [​IMG]
    So much for thinking that they won't lay until they have a "perfect" environment and nest boxes. I can't believe how excited we all were over one tiny infertile egg!
