New York mini chickenstock 2016 - Page 48
OK - I keep promising and keep getting busy - but I'll make a list soon of what I have and who gets it soon.
Anyway Boskilli - you wanted willow starts before - none took good root - so that fell flat last year ... BUT I got rooting powder and can give it another try if you like ?
Again - will have very small wild plum (beech plum) starts, willow starts, and my hatching eggs (Marans, ABs, and Colo Mix) - I'm trying to have chicks available - but no guarantees as it will only be my second incubator hatch ever ...
I have decided to part with 2 of the white splash AB adult hens if anyone is interested - $15 each - they are the new breed - and I will also have some AB hatching eggs - and will be putting in the bator ... so maybe the babies .... That will leave me with 2 white and 2 grey hens and a grey roo with a few new babies ... a good size for my AB flock .... These hens are exactly 1 year old in 3 days - and didn't lay through the winter - so a good prime age.
I think I'll pass on the willow thanks, but will take a plum off your hands! plus the 4 AB chicks.....then my coop is full (well, for this year anyway)
Expat Brit living the dream - 40ish chickens, 2 Beagles, 2 cats, rabbits........and counting.

@cutipatooti If you're still interested in the WH ducklings it's looking like I might have them coming out of my ears. All the eggs I set are developing, along with the KCs, so if anyone wants ducklings, just give me a shout because I'll have them, lol.
I will have to see. I got some eggs and they developed well for me. I have 6 pipped right now. They are due to hatch tomorrow. I was not really expecting much on shipped eggs and my first time hatching ducks. If they don't make it I will defiantly want some.
@Pyxis was it you that had the guinea eggs?
Yes it was
count me in. I'm sick of finding ticks on my dog and son!!! The guinea house will be a nice safe place that is located smack in the center of where the kids and dogs play. My dog is very bird friendly, he will guard them. Icky yucky bugs need birds to eat them!!!
Sounds good! Barring her going broody between now and then, I'll have eggs for you. I'm about to set a few myself to confirm fertility

Chicken Girl....I don't think you got any Silkies? I just got 3 new girls.
One blue and white paint, and one brownish paint, and one black.
They are adorable.
I remember you inquiring about Silkies. AND Rancher calls them Aliens.
And says they are not Chickens. They are adorable chickens for us and
we love them...and have a flock of just Silkies. Regards, Aria
