Glad you dropped in!
What kind of chickens (or other) do you keep?
Ducks are all lumped into one bin. Best I could say to get Pekins was, "Give me four big yellow ones." Kept going back to check for chicks, disappointed every time. Mislabeled breeds, dead chicks they didn't bother to check for... Got our 6 chicks at Southern States, and limit our TSC purchases now.
I'm loving the 4 OEGB hens and the Brahma rooster from you. The girls are sweet and beautiful, and the roo is taking great care of my comets.
Incubator is looking good with 8 golden sebright eggs, 4 SDW OEGB eggs, and 12 lavender orpingtons on day 7.
2-week old cochin/silkie mixes are looking great! 4 frizzle, 2 smooth - 3 black, 3 blue, both smooth are blues.
All my hens are laying well now. If anyone needs eggs to incubate, pm me!
My advice would be to pick a few that you like, in your price range, that hold as many eggs as you think you'd want to do, then ask particulars. Also consider whether you need a turner, or whether you can hand turn yourself. Often the turners are sold separately.
