    I am going to build one of MissPrissy's bators and try to hatch some chicks this fall or next spring. I have a question, however! This sounds VERY addicting, by the way everyone keeps hatching all of these eggs. What do you all do with your chicks after they hatch??? I realize that you probably keep a hundred or so (hee, hee!), but what about the other hundreds?!?!

    Someone is always knocking on my door for chicks or eggs...I sometimes give them to the "right" person .....or I put a sign up at the feedstore...

    Those that I can't give away or sell, are right tasty. Some fried, some baked and some BBQ'ed.

    Put signs up at the feed store, advertise them on Craigslist, word of mouth, etc. Sometimes they go quickly, sometimes it takes a while.
