    how many Eggs you get today

    Only 1 today, but after several months of not laying I guess I'll need to give them a week or two before they start to kick into gear.

    In the last 3 years I have only had 1 DOA and 1 died within 2hours of getting it home and in the brooder on 2/8/21, the other 17 egg laying chicks are just fine. Iam glad that I got them when I did, but my next order of meat chicken chicks has been canceled by the hatchery.

    USPS embargo on live animals (chicks) through Feb 26, 2021!

    Iam also outside city limits on an old chicken farm that used to house 50,000 chickens, it's been over 20 years since chickens where here. But the zoning is still in place as agricultural / commercial. The city just changed their ruling that no more 3 chickens per residents or lot can be kept.

    I am going to start looking for hatcheries and breeders that are no more then a days drive, there and back for my chicks. Help your neighbors and support your local breeders, we are strong if we stand together while this embargo is in place.

    MARCH 2021 HATCH-A-LONG 🌷🌸🌼

    They are from my Chinese incubator that I got on Amazon. I took them out for lockdown on that incubator, so I tried them in the NR360 and they fit from corner to corner. Rural King also sells egg turners for one of there incubators they sell.
