    This is maverick babysitting "his" flock of 10. They are 17 weeks old and my RSL should give me an egg any day now! The anticipation is killing me.

    Where are you from? Great pic! I love how you have the chickens and lovely dog in this pic with that background! Awesome! :) :love And yes the first egg will come soon just be patient! Once they start laying it seems like they never stop! Eggs and more eggs piled up in the fridge!

    Hi there! I'm a newbie and my chicks are about 6 weeks old. They were sold to me as Araucanas... We are very residential and have a lot of cats in the neighborhood so they spend most days in their chicken tractor I made for them out of pvc pipe and chicken wire :) they're a crazy bunch of chicks and I can't wait for eggs!

    Does anyone own Columbian rocks? If so when do they usually start laying? Are they early or late?
