    Thanks! The first hatch in the Coolerbator? They are still too young, they are but 2/3 weeks old, I have no clue who is who yet. I didnt sex them as day olds : (
    However, 8 of the eggs were a friends eggs, so I gave him the chicks and one of our brahma chicks. so its a waiting game! There are still 25+ peeps in the brooder!
    Our Partridge brahmas ended up to be 5 roos and 5 hens though.

    Awesome story, I was wondering how many cockerels and pullets did you offically end up with from your first hatch and did you keep any of them ?

    Love the chickens and their coops! I know how you feel about the silkies. Ugh! It can be so so so annoying when they are afraid of you for no reason.

    I absolutely LOVE the scolding picture! She talks to the 'big man on campus' the same way I do. Doesn't look like he intimidates her at all! :) Glad to see others are as in love with their chickens as I am. I don't feel so crazy after all. Yay!

    At 10ยข each, I'm guessin' you'd have to sell a few dozen eggs just to cover any given day's raisins. This has gotta be the cutest page. Ever.

    LOL 52 years!!
  25. daholtzclaw
    I have a 52 year old "boy" that scolds our "big" chickens for chasing our silkies or picking on each other. Guess we're never to old to love our chickens.
  26. Sallysec
    Love it! I hope my kids love the chickens as much as yours do!
  27. Sally Sunshine
    I would but the walls are full!! lol Thanks!! I also have older sons out of college and out of house, having these new little ones does take the hurt away but it is still there but I think about something else when I feel that pain : (

    Your pictures are wonderul. But the one of the little boy with the chicken to his face made me miss my boys (they are grown) so much. That I would blow up and frame.
