"Hi. No suggestions. Just a little patience. Did you put the eggs under Peeps the day you got them? We can give you more if you want. The heat and rain has slowed our best layers. I think Spring is the best time for chicks. If you don't get…"

We have a pole in the covered area of our coop. Our girls and our Roo get up on it and sleep all snuggled any fluffed up. Our girls have started eating more and they are getting all fat for the Winter. On another idea, we bought an…"
