I started to say - when you have over 300 eggs in the incubator and just pulled 50 chicks from the hatcher, you really don't need any more.
Then I remembered that I'm already thinking about the new breeds that I want to acquire this year, so I sort of have to agree with your sentiment. I may not "need" more, but I certainly want more.
On that topic, anyone thinking about a pet turkey this year? I have some of the most adorable little Midget White poults. They are so friendly, even at just a week old. I'd like to see the extras we can't keep go to someone that will keep them as pets like we do. Turkeys are not as practical as chickens for producing eggs, but our Midget White hens outdo our larger turkeys at least 2 to 1 in egg production. The eggs are smaller than from the Black Mottled hens, but so many more of them.
