MB - yes, SFH roos are notoriously communal - they get along with each other. They may squabble every now and then, but nobody would think you were starting up a cock-fighting business based upon their behavior - LOL! My 3 girls have been laying an average of 5 eggs a week each over the past weeks. Their eggs are usually Large with some being XL and a few M... but my girls won't be a year old until August! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my SFH!! Oh heck - I do numbskull things all the time. I'm forgetful as can be and stress does nothing for improving it - LOL! And with my kids... well... there is plenty of stress to be found! That's where chickens come in. On any nice day, I can be found lying dormant in my yard covered in chickens. People probably think I'm dead and the chickens are eating me. Totally agree about people believing everything they hear. For proof, just look at all the crapola posted on FaceBook! LOL! Also - I believe that DE works because it is porous and has shard-like edges which deter or even kill bugs... but it looses these edges when wet... which would mean that it would have no value if fed... but perhaps I just heard that somewhere... Night all!
