    I got 6 eggs out of the baby coop this morning (25 weeks old- 4 from layers, 2 from meaties), so [​IMG]
    (Looks like I got the rest of the nestboxes installed just in time)

    I also got an egg out of the adult coop, meaning my big girls are finally finishing up their molt! so, [​IMG]

    Third, even my DH admitted that he's getting excited to see what color eggs the easter eggers are going to lay (those two haven't started yet), so [​IMG] again

    I'm jealous!! It'll be 9 months before I get fresh eggs since we will be moving out to the 10 acres this spring and then we'll have to wait for the chicks to grow up.. :)

    Quote:You know better than that! I now have five supposedly broody breeds and not a single broody! (Of course the babies are still young).

    BTW, your namesake has had his butt thoroughly kicked by Thor today, but he's learning to outrun him. [​IMG]

    It is kinda exciting to watch all the little ones check out the new nestboxes and try to guess who'll be next.

    My silkies? Still clueless [​IMG]

    Quote:Me too. Or that Jethro laid an egg.

    But [​IMG] for all your eggs! I love my EE, she's one of my favorites. She flies up onto my arm when she wants treats. My son thought it was funny one day I went in to give them treats, and I didn't want her flying up onto me so I kept my arms tucked in tight to my body. Next thing I know I have a chicken on my head and my son is laughing his butt off. [​IMG]

    When or more like IF I get a broody, y'all will be the first to know. Heck, I'll probably even take a top of the page banner ad out on BYC. "GRITTY HAS A BROODY!!"

    Wouldn't that be something?!?

    Ain't gonna happen. Jethro will one day lay eggs and be the world's only non-broody silkie. [​IMG]
