Well.. I have a FEW chickens now (6 to be exact, though my sister may need to rid herself of some silkies soon... and I don't have anything against a couple tiny eggs as long as they eat less too), but they haven't started laying yet. I don't think they will before August either. They may have another month or so to go before I really start to get much production out of them. The roosters aren't even crowing yet.
Here's my favorite rooster ... you can see he's got a bit more growing to do yet:
Of course, this was all a matter of a whole "homeschooling" project for the little one. Including plotting their growth, making hypotheses. Naming the coop included synonyms and antonyms, and then... well... general hard work, measuring, the build, caring for others, hygiene, etc. It's been a ride! She's hoping she can learn MORE next spring when we leave a few eggs under a broody hen (well, that's another hypothesis: will we have one? which one will it be?). I did have a few chickens before. They lived in an old dog house. These ones are fancier and therefore have a nice fancy coop. LOL! Jim went all out for his little princess! Technically, they are "her pets".
So yeah, if you've got eggs and want to bring them along, we'll certainly appreciate them, and will be more than happy to cook ya breakfast!
