20 hens, (silkie and BO) + 2 roos, + the arrival of spring, (can anyone say BROODIES??)
= 45 chickens, of which 20 are roos.

Then, 20 roos = chicken soup, which equals a mysterious package from someplace called "Brinsea". (Must have been the cat...)

1 mysterious package + 25 hens + a feeling of inadequate chicken numbers because of aforementioned processed roosters = 70 chickens.

But then you have an urge to get ducks which means 2 ducks =17 ducks, but you absolutely have to get turkeys, geese, quail and pheasants and then you have to debate emu and peafowl.

70 chickens (Other poultry does not count here!) plus the discovery of an exiting place called "ebay"
= 40 hatching eggs

(While getting coffee, the cat walked in again and placed the winning bid on 40+ frizzled tolbunt polish hatching eggs.)

40 hatching eggs + 21 days = 20(+) chicks.

(After the tolbunt hatch, you realize those guys are so stinkin' cute you really should have more and set up a breeding program. Sooo....)

4 chickens + 2 chickens =
150 chickens and a 200 egg incubator on the way that that dumb cat accidentally bought!
(the 17 ducks, 5 peas, 3 geese, 7 turkeys, 5 pheasants, 15 quail, and 2 emu don't count)

So I'm trying again! I got some local barnyard mix eggs from someone, and I got a Brinsea Mini Advance (on Amazon's warehouse deals so the price wasn't too bad) and I'm taking everything to my daughter's classroom on Monday.  I'm hoping the "set it and forget it" method will work nicely in the classroom setting.

I have 3 hens at my house, and they are a year old in the next week or so.  Just starting laying again after a winter break and I *love* getting eggs again.  I'm hoping to add an EE or Ameraucana, and a Maran to my flock to give myself--I mean, my kids the excitement of a colorful egg carton   The roo that's over the eggs I got is a Maran and I have one pretty dark egg in my mix so I'm hopeful it will hatch beautifully and be a girl!
Sorry about the hatch but glad you didn't give up!! I absolutely love my mini!! Best incubator ever. You'll do great this time!

@AmyLynn2374 @RavynFallen

Those are gorgeous!!! Box them up quick, I'll give you the address!!

Seriously, nice job!!

And those are considered Your Line now... you bred them, that is your breeding... your flock is based on (yadda, yadda's) line, but those were bred by you... F1 is used for a 1st generation in crossbreeding different breeds for a project, like Olive Eggers and such...
