    We are at 5 weeks and so far, so good! We have 4 pretty tame and 8 fraidy cats. But tonight 2 of them put themselves to bed and 4 more went with a little encouragment. We are progressing! This is a fun addiction!

    I hadn't thought about checking the calendar to see an actual date for our first eggs!

    Mine are 6 weeks old yesterday and so far they have been soo healthy. They have been living in their coop since day one and with all the fabulous help I have gotten from all you members they are doing great! I am so excited and so proud. I could not have done it without all your help. Thank you so much everyone, I really appreciate all you help, advice and friendly chit chat. I love BYC folks. Trudy [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
