    Gretabee........ My chicks were broody hatched about 4 weeks ago and mom had them outside for the day at 3 days old. When I bought them from the hatchery, I had them outside in the coop without a heat lamp at about 3 weeks old. At that age, at night when it cools off they are sleeping in a...

    For those of you who provided me with eggs........and those who just like pics of chicks. I don't think any of these are Ashley's I think I ended up with 3 of Steve's and 3 of Wendell's. Can't see these too well, but I think all 3 chicks are Wendell's. 1 female and 2 males? I think...

    Well, so my hatch is over. First chick about 7 am Monday morning. Last chick late Monday evening. Of the 11 eggs she was sitting on, 6 hatched. I took pictures, but, lol, just realized I have no idea how to get them from my cheapo phone to my laptop. My best guess as to whose eggs...

    Well after hustling around getting fertile eggs for my two broodies (thanks to Ashdoes, euarto gullible and Wendell), I tacked the difficult task of moving my broodies from where they were (an elevated nest box) to where I WANTED them to be. I divided the eggs up and penned them in an area on...

    TADA - Once again i have a couple of girls who have gone broody, a SS and a BA. So, I am looking to pick up 6-9 fertilized eggs so I can let them hatch some. I deliberately did not buy chicks this year cuz I knew I wanted to do this. I'm not particularly picky about breeds, except that I do...

    Samsr, just a FYI. If you are interested in the Elizabeth Geese that are coming in, call them. They will reserve however many of the geese you want out of their next order, AND call you when they come in.

    I see BYC has found a way to get in more advertising and decrease the space used by us chickeneers.

    Wendell so glad to read about your hatch. Hoping the next 40 goes even better. All you guys hatching eggs is driving me crazy. I am hoping one of my hens goes broody soon (altho past history says it won't be til fall). Then I'm gonna try to find 6-8 fertile eggs somewhere to put under...
