I appreciate that, thank you for the encouragement. The first time I got eggs was a couple months ago. And I went into the post office because they shipped it to the wrong place. And I said, how did you ship it to the wrong place? And they said the box must've fell off of the cart Yikes.

We have Blue, Black & Splash Copper Marans, Calico/Mille Fleur and Self Blue Bantam Cochins, LF Cochins, and a laying flock of various heritage breeds, EE's, production breeds, mutts and more! We also have Quarter Horses, a pony and rescued dogs and cats. I usually have an incubator or 2 running too!

I just hope I didn't mess anything up by making a hole... hmm.png

You didn't mess anything up.

In audy's case, I can confirm healthy parent birds, as they belong to me.  smile.png
