    I love this blog! Thanks for doing this. I didn’t know that hens don’t need a rooster to lay eggs–is egg laying similar to humans ovulating?

    I also didn’t know that cows don’t have top teeth. Your bunnies are adorable!

    Once a pullet starts laying eggs, how long does it take for the eggs to be consistently large?

    I am just not sure why they call Rabbits having little one Kindling. Not like you can use them to starta fire. 😉 I wonder where the term came from.
