    Okay so I have a broody hen right now that is sitting on 6 Golden Cuckoo Marans eggs that I got from Melissa(pasofinofarm). Well on the 9th I ordered 3 Golden Sex-Links from Ideal and they are arriving the same day as my GCM are hatching, this Wednesday. Well I dont know what came over me, but at the last minute I thought I would see if I could add to my order. Sure enough the nice sales rep at Ideal told me to call the night before or the morning of and ask if they had "a 100% hatch." Sooooo I now have coming this Wed. 3 Sex-Links, 2 EEs, and 2 white leghorns. DH is so gonna kill me. Just recently I talked him into letting me go bigger on the coop. So it will now be 8x10. What have I gotten myself into? [​IMG]

    I orginally bought 7 thinking I might lose 2 (free range) to predators etc...
    I didn't, then I ordered 6 more. I am trying desperately not to order 25 or more. Must....fight order.....more....chicks! [​IMG]

    I really am trying to overcome this horrid addiction.

    As I was standing in the coop this evening, counting hens and looking at the juvies, I thought, "What on earth have I done?" I've got 29 eggs in the bator due to hatch Fri/Sat! I've got to vaccinate all of these chickens this weekend! Have I gone completely mad?

    I walked out of the coop and smiled.

    Tell me about it! I started off telling hubby I ONLY wanted one chicken. Found out you at least have to have two. Now Im on number 19 come this Wed. [​IMG] I only ordered the extra four this morning thinking, well I'll at least have one roo in those eggs. Cause I mean, come often is it that you incubate 6 eggs and get all 6 girls? At least these I will be able to sex the day they hatch, so I can get rid of the roos.
