    I don't really care either way if roo or pullet....benefits of country life LOL
    HOWEVER I found an egg on the floor of the bantie coop, and Silk is the only one who can't fly up to the nest box, so trying to figure out if it's Silk's egg and I need to put a couple lower boxes in...OR if the nest box was occupied and I have more than one pullet laying.
    Here is Silk with Rizz, these 2 are inserperable, I bought them from the same breeder when they were a few days old.

    Very calm and peaceful, doesn't pick on anyone....I can scoop Silk up and place in with new chicks and not have a single problem. The other smaller chicks in the banty coop, try to snuggle under her/him.
