When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. Isaiah 43:2

Kya ran into the house this evening dripping chocolate push up ice cream all over the floor saying, "Mommy, come outside with us..." and so I went stomping out to find that "supervising" father of hers! I said ever so sweetly, "Scott, your daughter just dripped chocolate ice cream all the way through the house!!!" He responded that he was so sorry and that he had told her to come get me because he had seen something exciting...since he was coming from the side yard, I figured, it wasn't anything really exciting, BUT IT WAS!!!!
It was our first egg!!!! We got rid of that mean ol' rooster and those hens finally relaxed enough to lay an egg!!! Oh man I am so excited! Totally worth cleaning chocolate ice cream out of the carpet--hey, it's better than poop, right?

In the picture, you see Scott's pretend egg (Titleist brand) that has been in the nesting box for a month trying to teach the girls where to lay. :) Isn't it cute?

So, you found homes for the roosters??


Yuhp, just one rooster it turned out. He is living on a nice ranch with other fowl and two of his own hens to dominate. He had been named "Bruno" last I heard.
