    My First Hatchings
    [​IMG]
    These were the first chicks I have ever tried to hatch, thank goodness I had a setting hen to do the "dirty" work. I just love having chickens as they are fun to watch and my rooster "Red" is a beautiful Rhode Island red. I have a mixed flock of whatever someone had and wanted to get rid of. Haven't been able to bring myself to eat any of them yet.

    Some of my 'excess' production got pickled. I experimented and tried different concentrations of vinegar before I came up with one that didn't pucker your lips too much. I sold all the quart bottles quickly and had mixed luck selling the gallon size.
