    Our first egg from our buffs! How exciting! Layed pretty much dead on 24 weeks. We don't know who it was but we have a suspicion that it was Hubert!

    You must be so proud. Hubert... I'm guessing there is a story behind that hen name, LOL.

    I thought perhaps you expected her to be a cockerel. Then I will tell you a story behind the name Hubert. Once upon a time there was a Hippo named Hubert, and then they found out Hubert was female and renamed her Huberta. For more on the story: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huberta_(hippopotamus)

    My thoughts too! Congrats on the egg, with many more to come!
