I joined this site last fall when hubs decided "we" needed fresh eggs. Although I don't post here I wanted the group of people here to know just how much I appreciate their wealth of knowledge and their kindness for sharing it. This has been my "go to" place for every question and curiosity I have had for the past six months. I'm happy to say that six of our seven RIR hens are now laying regularly (our runt, Spud, is lagging a bit behind) and I am enjoying them more than I thought I would. Thank you again for creating this site and for all of the amazing contributors! You are greatly appreciated!
