I want to split the 3 boys into 3 separate coops and give each boy a few of each breed of lady's. Now it's up to 21 and the hunt for an incubator. . I only want to hatch a few,

Need to know what might become of that egg... Stop, walk away... Or better yet, wash the eggs and sell them or give them away as eating eggs... Lol. No trouble here. Just hangin w my chickens
My kids think I'm nuts. I'm not nuts, wife says I take more pictures of my birds than my kids...I take more pics and video of the kids than she does so...
Weighed my giant roo today, only eight and a half pounds, @ 8 months, he's huge thought he'd weigh more. They say they don't put on weight till their over a yr.
I don't think he likes me anymore, planed on weighing them all, it was to much work...
