    Do you think it is the cold weather? My friend got her 50 from McMurray. While I was over there four more died she has lost half so far. They are shipping more out to here but it took them four days to get to the post office...poor little guys....I hope her next shipment is better....

    we will raise them all we have 78ac for them to run on. I might sell or give a few of the roos away to some one if they need a roo.

    Looks like we might need to look in to selling some eggs [​IMG] hmmm How long will fresh eggs last?

    I also have honey bees so I could sell honey and egg

    :eek:
