we have 10 chicks but one doesn't seem to be doing so well, so we may be down to nine tonight.  hopefully she'll make it through!

I hope your little one pulls through!  I had one with a severe respiratory infection that pulled through at 4 weeks of age.  It was a very stressful time.

I have a Hudan hen that hatched 2 mutt eggs, a polish hen that hatched 2 mutt eggs and an Australorp hen that ended up with 5 hatchlings.  I think the father to all are my gorgeous, red Polish boy, Hector.  I feel a little like a "chicken mill" letting these eggs hatch but I will be a responsible chicken owner and keep them all.  Hope I don't have two many roosters because I'm having trouble finding places for bachelors to live.  I have four in my horse barn and two in my back yard so that I only have one with my hens!  I love chickens!

We just received our first chicks, 4 BPR's and 2 RIR's. I could not imagine having 20+ at one time!!!

Wow, I can't imagine the amount of feed you go through.  My 50lb bag barely lasts a month with my 8. wink
