    so, we answered an ad on craigslist. we purchased some bantams from a nice couple.

    they had bantam barred rocks, bantam RIR and bantam Cornish. we paid $5 a piece for several adult birds.

    well, the RIR and Cornish were already brooding on eggs and they just gave us the eggs too. we put the 5 bantam RIR eggs under another broody hen, put the 9 bantam cornish eggs in the bator.

    they all hatched this week!!!, best deal ever? well, it was for us. 7 adult birds X $5 each, plus 14 chicks for free! [​IMG]
