    Ok, so I order my first mail order eggs, they are in the brooder now, and I am hooked even without chickies to play with yet.

    So I have a HUGE question, how do you sell all of the chicks you hatching addicts hatch out???? My husband is worried we will end up with hundreds of chickens!!!

    I have even resorted to checking out e-Bay, ackkkkk!![​IMG]

    I was wondering that myself all this hatching going on it wouldnt take long for them to get overcrowded so what does everyone do with all the chicks??? For myself im looking for about 20 for my flock 18 hens and 2 roos. I plan on eating the extra roos. [​IMG]

    Quote:Lawdy, lawdy. Unfortunately, any pictures I take would only show part of the story, as I am the sole individual with hands capable of operating a camera where I live. I get surrounded by the flock whenever I step outside. Front yard, mostly the senior flock-members. Back yard, mostly the junior members unless I have treats, then EVERYbody comes running.

    Then there is the ginormous brooder in the shed, currently occupied by 26 eight-week old chicks. Then seven more in the bathroom brooders, and two more 9week old chicks "in hospital," recovering from injuries.

    But I will try to get a Most of The Flock shot this weekend; it's the onlytime I am there during daylight hours.

    Surely the OP meant to write BUY more chickens.

    I just put an ad on craigslist for my extra Cochin cockerals for $10 each (they are a hot item around here.) Have someone coming to look tomorrow. It's sad, because I"m attached....but I figure it's a good way to convince hubby to let me hatch/buy more! [​IMG]
