    Rare Feathers Farm Overrun With Chickens

    I was out checking the birds yesterday afternoon and Clementine (my favorite chicken) LAID her FIRST egg! She was so proud, too! She literally RAN to me when I opened the door & and then walked back & circled the egg! It was small, very oblong/pointed at one end and kind of lumpy--looked like it hurt coming out! But she laid her first egg! [​IMG]

    Now I'm just hoping she gets better. [​IMG] She had a brutal over-zealous (young) roo peck the back of her head pretty badly (blood was EVERYWHERE on Saturday) so she's on antibiotics and she's isolated from everyone else...but she's eating/drinking and now laying! I'm not eating her eggs, either, BTW....since she's on the meds...

    Congratulations! Yay! [​IMG]

    I made Christmas ornaments out of the first eggs I got- red ribbon and little silver bells!

    Thanks! Yeah because of her meds I do not want to eat it & unforunately, it's too weird looking for me to incubate it...so I just had to admire it. LOL

    Well, he's isolated from everyone else...I'm not sure what to do with him! Of course, he is the most gorgeous GLC roo I have--but I do have a back-up one....Hubby says to trim his beak??

    Quote:I have found that a Dremel with the round drum sander works excellent with trimming beaks. Just use on the slower setting. The chickens don't seem to mind a bit.
