Hi All, I am new to chickens since May. I have been having a blast: the Silkies, the Guineas, the Cochins, and how they all relate to each other, us and our little dogs. So far only one cochin has laid any eggs. She chooses to jump the fence into the shed and lay them under the workbench. We can't get to the eggs...but Mitzi can!! She is so proud of her "job." Check her out!
