    I can't find my old post where I showed pics of them as peepers, but here are some of my girls now - 20 weeks old.....we are patiently waiting for eggs.....or nor so patiently, we can't wait!

    Foghorn- RIR and a total sweetie....our other RIR is sweet too, but very shy

    Ghost - Delaware, the Head Hen, a little persnickety, but I am sure it's just an ego thing

    Makarov - Gold Laced Wynadotte, the largest of them all, but at the bottom of the pecking order, another sweetie

    Thanks! [​IMG] Spoiled rotten is more like it.....my husband keeps calculating how much each egg is going to cost us every time I go out there with extra treats.....apples, cabbage, romaine lettuce, grapes, etc. He says they eat better than we do [​IMG]

    One of my two RIR's laid her first egg today at 23 weeks of age. They look like mine did a few weeks ago, so hopefully you'll get some soon!
