Awww cute

One of our Mille Fleur bantams--which are both roosters--has started crowing. It is the most adorable thing. I love the bantams. They are so birdy. They rule the chicken yard. I'll try to get a decent pic of the Yellow Japanese bantam so you can see how spectacular he is.

Note the use of the word "he." Lots of male banties. But overall we have about a three-to-one ratio of hens to roosters (unlike in the duck pen, where I am pretty sure it's four-to-one in favor of drakes!). So fellow poultry raisers: When do the hens start laying their first teeny little eggs?
