    I ordered eggs from Papa's Poulty to hatch at my daughter's school. He has the pens divided and marks the eggs so you know what lines they're from. He sent plenty of extras. Our hatch rate wasn't great but the incubator was in the classroom. I think we only had 1-2 without any development...

    I have 5 chicks (almost 5 weeks old) that are either white, wheaten/blue wheaten/splash. Here are three. The white one acts like a cockerel and has very thick legs. He is the true white, correct? What color and sex do you think the other two chicks are in these photos are? I think they look...

    if you look on Craigslist there's a lady in Altadena who sells a backyard mix of hatching eggs for $1 each. Our school had great hatch rates from her eggs--much better than shipped eggs from breeders and hatcheries.

    post your chicken coop pictures here!
