|The two black hens in the back are the broody ladies|
|buff orphs to the rescue!|
Luckily my young buff orphington pullets are starting to lay and as of now I have 4 of them laying eggs, albeit tiny and infrequently, but they really are making a difference with 2 hens down and 1 gone. My pekin duck (as mentioned above) is laying eggs daily and I couldn't be happier to see it. I don't really want more ducks but I do want to see if either of our drakes are doing their "job" so that's why I'm going to see if the broody will hatch one out for me. Both my husband and son like duck meat so a few ducks each year probably wouldn't be too bad. I think 7 for us was too many though.

I was at the fertility doc this morning, got all my scripts to get the meds so here we go again. My first official month of trying will be October. I'm not going to post the play by play, but hopefully it will result in some eventual good news.
