    It snowed this morning. I have two Araucanas that are about 9 mos and five different breeds that are not quite 5 mos. A 9 mo Araucana is starting to get a little red around the face and the 5 mo BR is beet red...so I thought one of them would be the first...but my 5 mo Silky was underneath a utility cart singing the egg song at the top of her lungs this afternoon....I have to work tonight so I will have to check and see if she left a present tomorrow. I won't let my two 9 mo old Araucanas live it down if my 5 mo silky laid an egg on the first snowy day of the year...any bets who will be first?
