    LOL. I've won the 1st Chick on NYD twice now.... And realized when bragging to folks that I have no life if I'm sitting at home on New Year's Eve waiting for eggs to crack. (Well, no life outside of BYC. Thanks, my friends!) Popped the champagne anyway.
    This year I'm not hatching (coop's full!), but wish y'all the best of hatches. If I'm lucky I may still be awake at midnight....


    2015 NYD's 1st chick Leza (f/k/a Solo) (12:06 a.m. 1/1/15)

    She's a farmer's market egg (Ameraucana x RIR) and now
    one of my best layers

    Let me reframe that.... (the intent didn't come out the way I intended)

    I've missed a couple of New Year's Eve parties due to hatching. Friends who are not into chickens just don't understand the thrill of the hatch. (Yes, it is addicting)

    Anyway, hopefully I'm still on somebody's invitation list this year. Otherwise I'll be sitting along with y'all but with an empty incubator.

    Me love my peeps, feathered or not.

    I'm sorry to be fickle... its really going to depend on how this current set goes. So I'll keep you posted.


    Not a darned thing wrong with that! And that chick is adorable!

    Now I have to look those up Bama, I have some marans in now, could be black, or blues. White sounds pretty.

    Oh wait! I also have splash in there..that's what I'm crossing fingers on getting. Looked up the whites, they are pretty.
