    Thank You Dana, for hosting!!! I might just wait until then to pick up my bag of scratch, if that's okay.

    I will venture to say that myself and my daughter will be entering deviled eggs. [​IMG] I didn't even know she knew how to make them, until she just whipped them up one day. (She's only 9)

    I'll go! It'll be nice to see everyone again.

    I also will be trading/selling my handsome White Leghorn (Foghorn) and his sister (Thora) together as a pair to a good home.
    'Foghorn Leghorn' is VERY sweet and fantastic to all the hens, and Thora is a great egg-layer-about 2 eggs a day.
    The Leghorns sleep in our trees between mine/my neighbor's house, and its bothering them that he crows by their house.
    So they need a great home to go to.
    Foghorn is truely sweet, unlike my first Roo I had... 'Thor the Beast'.

    All of them are organic fed, extremely kind and friendly, hand fed and great foragers. They would sit in your lap and soak up the sun.

    I would trade or sell them at a good price for a good home. I'll try to get pictures of them today.
    Thanks,
    Laura
