    It makes me miss my fuzz butts [​IMG] Mine are all out of their cute little fuzz butt stage! My poor guineas are even starting to look like ugly little guineas instead of cute little keets!


    And I like your brooder set up !!!![​IMG]

    WOOHOOO! Congrats!!! I love the brooder!!! Send it my way so I can have that many chicks! LOL!

    Seriously, what are you going to do with that many? You must have a HUGE coop, or building of some type! Are you a commercial raiser?

    ENVIOUS!!
