    Received our first batch of chicks from McMurray in March, 2009. Hens: Australorps (5), Barred Rocks (2) & Rhode Island Red (4). One Australorp roo with a bonus Black Polish roo.
    Picked up three Red Star chicks in April, followed by eight more chicks in May: Turkens (3), Faverolles (2) & Light Brahmas (3).
    First egg in early August, 2009 (from an RIR). Sell the eggs out of the house. Sold 10 or 20 dozen before we started keeping track; just sold our 455th dozen yesterday.
    Just picked up six Americauna mix chicks last week (only one roo!).
    Decided we wanted to have a hand at hatching eggs, so we picked up a HovaBator w/ auto tuner and added a fan to it. Set eggs last week; first hatch is due around 11/17.
