    I got my first three pips this evening! So excited! One was one of the eggs I didn't think would hatch! It's so awesome to hear their little peeps in the bator! We may have a few fluff balls in the morning!!!

    Hi all, my wife and I are just getting started raising chickens, we have 10 Gold Stars that are just over 3 weeks old.
    We are in Kitsap County, WA, wondering when to put them outside. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    My 9 month old black jersey giant squatted for me today! Woohoo! I'll have 7 layers very soon. I have 4 right now. Cocoa BCM has been squatting a few weeks and Rosie RIR just finished molting, she was a great layer before molting.

    Woohoo!! Please do post some pictures when they hatch, I can't wait! How exciting! You're not going to sleep a wink tonight are you ;)
    Welcome Joe! If you can put their brooder lamp outside with them, any time is just fine. If not, I recommend waiting until they're fully feathered, including under their wings, around 8-10 weeks.

    Hey- someone posted this to my FB page- and the trailer for this movie is incredible. It's about the Albatross at Midway Island, 2000 miles from the closest inhabited island.

    Check this out:

    Turtle, love Rooster. He looks mottled to me, I think it's called roaning in dogs- very attractive. He looks happy to have his blanket.

    Marie laid her first egg yesterday! She's a bantam EE, so it's tiny and blue. So cute!
