    Chicken math prevailed!

    This. This is what I want to do. We just kinda went overboard at the very beginning because I couldn't help myself. 6-12 was the magic number at first. It ended up being 36 and we've lost two so we're sitting at 34 now. I know two are for sure being culled (Roger is the size of a young turkey at...

    Chicken math prevailed!

    :lau:gig:lau:gig:lau True!!! These are cures.... For your existing excess. But then.... Chicken math replaces the fried chicken, roast chicken, chicken soup with twice the chickens needed for the recipes. It's a never-ending circle of chickens! Thank you!! I love Agatha Christie! The chicken...

    Chicken math prevailed!

    Ohhhhhh... pictures of new chickies so that we can all drool and satiate our own chicken math addictions. Please? I don't think they've found a cure for chicken math. Yet. I (secretly) hope they don't. :oops:

    Halloween/Thanksgiving Hatch-a-Long 2019

    I've got 2 EE's out there now that are 3 months old. I'm kind of hesitantly excited to see what color eggs they give me. Slightly afraid that I'm going to be disappointed. It would be my luck. :lol:

    Was just looking at this one. All the nifty bells and whistles. Does the egg candler work well?

    Halloween/Thanksgiving Hatch-a-Long 2019

    Your incubation attempt of balut eggs and the DIY bator is what made me want to even start looking into hatching in the first place. I read all 400+ pages of that thread. Have you used a forced air bator and prefer still air? :caf Doing all the research before purchasing.

    And an apple, strawberries, potatoes, onions, water, drains, nostrils... I hate those stupid things. Can't bring home any fresh fruit or veggies without ending up with 20,000 for the next few weeks.

    Talk to me about your favorite quail!

    Loving all the info, y'all. AR Game and Fish website talks about how we used to have lots of Bobwhites in AR but don't anymore. There are programs that will help you develop your land (thoughts to ponder since I do own land out in the country that we farm for now) to bring the Bobwhite...

    My youngest is almost 2. Turns 2 in January. My oldest is just as obsessed, however, he's Deaf (lucky him...) and on the spectrum. He likes the dance and the videos that go along with it. Turn it on the TV on the YouTube app and they're golden for as long as you'll let it play over and over...

    Halloween/Thanksgiving Hatch-a-Long 2019

    Yes! My daughter has a cat that walks then stops to "meow" only it sounds more like it's barking this high pitch bark mixed with a squeaky toy stuck in it's throat. She hated it when she was a baby but at almost 2, she loves it and thinks it's hilarious. I hate it. The good thing about the...

    :pop Watching, learning, researching bators, planning to join a hatch-a-long at a later date... Reading every page while this thread is still only 43 pages. I learned my lesson with a few others that took me days to read through but I didn't want to miss reading anything. :th Excited to see the...

    Talk to me about your favorite quail!

    Super helpful and informative!! Some friends of ours have Bobwhites and my husband is in love with the sound they make. I've noticed a lot of BYC'ers raise Coturnix so I like hearing about y'all's experiences with your favorite breeds! Very interesting to learn about the cock/hen ratio! I was...

    Talk to me about your favorite quail!

    I've been bitten by the bug now and as my fine, feathery friends are growing up nicely, I'm already making plans for the Spring. These plans are looking like they're going to include quail. So, all you quail-lovers, tell me a few things... What are your favorite breeds and why? Hatching eggs...
