However, it is all very interesting. Looking at hatching again because the kids like the chicks and the hatching process. And it's really not very difficult when the hen does it for you! Best wishes with your girls!
Yes it's in Ephrata and it's every Friday, not sure if it's all year long but I know it's at least Spring, Summer and Fall. They also have special Saturday auctions... not sure how often, maybe once per month?! I heard about the Saturday auction on here 2 weeks ago and we went to that one, our family has decided we like the auctions lol! I know Root's does it too, however Green Dragon's are a lot cleaner and you can buy/sell in lesser amounts (that opinion is based on my very limited experience).
I decided to get adult chickens or older pullets so we would get eggs sooner (that's supposed to be the whole point)... well this has been a learning experience to say the least !! However,it's only been a week and we already LOVE the girls, go figure hehe! Hubby is already talking about getting more so we can have the mixed flock I originaly intended... yup, we're hooked .
