I can't let a season go by without hatching chicks, even if the existing crew are hale and hardy.  I do have a few gals who are not up to standard, productivity wise, plan to hatch from the 2 y.o. gals who gave me such nice sex link and auto sexed chicks last year, then will hatch from the younger group, which should NOT be auto sexing.  It will be interesting to see what F2 yields.  Definitely need to move some of them out!

Jesus Christ is my pilot.

My husband of 41 years is my best friend and co-pilot.

Enjoying my gardens.  My flock are my garden helpers.

Breeding a winter hearty flock with small combs and colored eggs.

Favorite breeds:  Dominique and EE.  Hatching addict.
