    They have not laid in so long I just thought of them as flying cats for awhile there. I got the first egg in four months yesterday and the second today...though I think she laid it last night. She did it while she was roosting so it broke and then got pooped on but still....it came out of a fluffy butt and that is all i care about! They are real live chickens again!!!!

    I guess they free load all winter and pay back during the other 3 seasons [​IMG]

    One of my girls was apparently so excited about the sun returning that she treated me to several days of two-eggs-a-day! Now we've settled down to a more reasonable pace. But isn't it nice to have some concrete (edible) proof that spring is coming back!?!
