    IMG_20190620_162336394.jpg My boys have taken charge of the chicken keeping now that school is out, ( yay me!) They raced in this morning to tell me there might be an egg. This was on the ramp into the coop. Thoughts? I am leaning towards colorful poo, but they will be crushed if I'm right and they're wrong. So we are going to let you experts weigh in. I will admit that it is off in color from their usual. Our flock is comprised of seven pullets and one Cockerel, all amberlinks, approximately seventeen weeks old.
