I didn't hear from everybody today but it was real close.
Another good thing about the warmer temperatures and longer days is that the girls have finally started laying eggs again. At Christmas, I had to break down and buy some at the grocery store!
The Gold Laced Wyandottes, Marsalla and Eggbirda were just taking a winter break. The younger Austrolorps, Diana, Florence and Betty are seven months old now and just starting to lay.

If the girls keep this up, I'll have to start giving eggs away soon. I have a couple of friends in the area who are going to start keeping bees in the Spring. What do you think, could we trade eggs for honey?
