The Australorpes are laying!

Or at least one of them is. We think it's Raspberry. She's the dominant one, with Licorice and Stubby respectively in pecking order. It's a pretty little pink egg. :)

Gali is spending a little bit of time hanging outside without us now (although I keep an eye on her without her knowing it). Our house is far enough from the main road that she's quite safe. She turned 12 weeks old yesterday, and, I guess, is maturing a tad. Big, brave girl was freaked out by a deer tonight. She's going to guard our chickens???!
