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.
