I am waiting to see what my girls give me today to add to the 54 backyard mixes they already have. I am also waiting for some hand delivered Barnvelder and Wheaton Ameracuana eggs that a friend picked up when she went to the next state to get a rooster. I am also scanning craigslist to try to score some more local eggs. Might try to find quail eggs, one of my DD's who is a chef has been wanting me to raise those too for both eggs and meat.
My enabler DH is egging me on (pun intended), to see how many I can set. I reminded him that he will be the one to build a brooder box big enough to fit all these chicks and the garage will be the temporary home until the mixes are sold.
Aaaannnnnd I have 4 hatched and at least 3 pips that I can see so far on a dz Blue Laced Red Wyandottes in the hatching tray right now.
There are another 32 due next week that are an assortment of shipped rare eggs and special gray eggs from @gimmie birdies
To say the least I have become quite obsessed with hatching and raising these wonderful birds! I do plan on selling many of the chicks and will have quite the assortment of eggs to sell for eating. My feed is nonGMO and organic but I cannot claim to be ORGANIC without certification so I will not be able to get the really big bucks, but enough to pay for feed and my breeding program birds..
