Quote:What if none of them hatch? What if only one hatches? Is it a color/breed you don't have? I sure I could think of some more I think you are my new best friend..... You make SUCH valid points!! Actually, I am purchasing a totally new breed (Lemon Cuckoo Orps), plus eggs of a breed where now I only have 1 pullet (she needs friends or her own, right?), and colors that I just love (special silkies). Yes, I knew there were really good reasons I was still buying eggs. I guess I just forgot.
