I hope you win, if you do could I have a new coop to go with that chicken?

Everyday I go out to write the date on the eggs, so I could remove the older ones the more they laid. I kept revolving around 12 eggs. I went out last night, but could not get into the nest. A hen is in there. I believe she is sitting on 14 eggs. That was yesterday evening around 6pm. She is still in there. I did see her out of the coop just before dark for about 30 sec's then she was back inside. Keeping my fingers crossed. They are all between 9-10 months old. The males have been strutting constantly since early january & my husband seen them a cpl times mid-late january breeding.
Welcome to the MI thread Congrats on the broody turkey.

Does anybody know of a farm selling chicks?
Welcome to the MI thread Family Farm and Home sells the cornish crosses. Unless you are looking for a dual purpose breed. See my siggy line for what I breed.

I'm picking the eggs.up tomorrow. If the gal with the pair calls back I may have to cancel picking up the eggs....Nah! Who am I kidding. They're small and can't eat much right. Repeat after me..I do not another chicken......I do not need another chicken......Lol.
Oh, you will be near me. You should give me a call sometime and we could meet. They will be having the small animal swap meet starting in April at the Family Farm and Home soon. I believe it is the second Saturday of every month till October, 8 till noon. I will have to find my paper and check the dates and time to be sure.

This is a Cathedral in Britain (Salisbury), where I used to go to school - I can't get the flash to work properly, the colors aren't right. But I'm very happy with the composition, even though Himself says I paint dark and dismal paintings (well, it's twilight!)
Beautiful art work TC
