OK.... just wanting to be neighborly here.... thought I would let you know I have numerous youngsters who were hatched from early February and a few later in February/early March. They are all spoiled rotten, constantly underfoot when I am out in the yard and starting to be ready for sale as I figure out 'for sure' roosters. I would love to see some go to you for free, I will even deliver if you are interested. They are mixes of large fowl birds and would be good roasters if you get an accidental roo, or just call and I would pick them up for you. The reason I would like to see you take a few is I know how friendly they are and they should be laying by mid summer.
I can also deliver a couple dozen eggs for you to hatch, mix of light and medium brown and some green ones....
Or if you want to just go with eggs we can start with that!
Sounds like a great reason to come visit you for a morning cup of coffee!
