Just a quick update. I went out to check on the chickens and found that Vanilla, my mutt chicken is very red in the face! woohoo she will be laying soon.
I don't think the others will be far behind because they are all showing some blush but it is hard to say how much because they have more feathers on their faces.
Soon we will be rolling in eggs and I can offer barter for some of the farm work I need done around here!
