    Those first crows are sweet. And funny! A friend of mine walked past the coop one day as one of my young roos let rip. He stopped in his tracks, stared at me in shock and asked "What. The. Hell. Was. That?"
    He's now the proud owner of quite a lot of chickens.
    Enjoy your eggs!

    I have some that are 19 weeks old and not even squatting and their combs aren't growing very much either. I hatched these out myself (well in my incubator). WAITING......

    mine don't squat. In fact none of my hens have until this past year and a couple of my hens are near 4yr old. ??? I haven't checked tonight but when I go clean up the watermellon treat I took them I'll see if there are any more. I think your right. I'll never know who it was. I do think one of them is from my red star as it was the size of my 4yr old bantams egg and she is the only full size chicken in there right now and no bantams first egg has ever been that big. lol! So I think I know one but won't figure the others out w/ 14 of them in there.
