I don't need more chickens, so I went for a limited hatch - think there are 5 eggs under two hens each hatching today, and 3 eggs under a little hen. I have another hen, and am letting her set on 3 eggs as well. I figure roosters will get swapped out for the red ranger pullets otherwise destined to be meat, and we will see about the pullets that hatch.
I haven't found an effective way of selling eggs, and schlepping them to the cities to distribute to family is getting old. So I am trying to downsize the flock (yup, that's chicken math here ).
but, want to say there is nothing sweeter than the cheep of a newly hatched chick.
