Peeper People Update Three
My beautiful Buff Orpington hens will be five months old at the end of this month. Every day, I check for eggs even though I know it's still too soon! This morning, Jerry mentioned that at least one of the hens has a larger and redder comb than the others. I have always heard that a red comb is a sign that a hen is laying! Check out the difference between these two! :)
When I took the chickens their half a pumpkin awhile ago, I took my camera to snap some pictures.
This girl's comb is quite a bit bigger and redder than the others!
This is what most of them still look like.
Just to prove to myself that I hadn't accidentally taken a picture of the rooster, I went back down and got one of him! ;-)
So, I'm hoping that I will find my first egg sometime soon!! I hope, I hope!!
