    This morning I decided that my biggest regret regarding my chickens was...

    I caught my EE having just gotten up from laying her egg this morning. I had never seen a wet bloom so of course stupid me had to closely inspect. I brought the egg up close to my face and then even more stupidly I sniffed - WHAT WAS I THINKING?! Whoa that was stinky!

    I suspect mine is the same as most others here.

    Not building a bigger coop.

    I'd like a bigger coop, but what I would really like is to win the lottery so that I can build a huge coop and have enough money to feed all my chooks properly [​IMG]

    I regret not winning the lottery.

    The problem I have now is my coop fits my budget for the birds I can house in it and feed.

    My biggest regret was starting out with only 2 chickens (I was worried if I was legal in my area).

    I have 3 now, with some chicks coming in the Spring. [​IMG]

    biggest regret
    not going ahead with my idea of starting a small poultry processing operation in my area. Closest to process birds for small farms is 3 hr. drive one way. I toyed with the idea but have so much happening on the farm, no way I could take on that project.

    Processing alot of birds for market is a pain! The price is right at the processer but too far away. Just make me go [​IMG]

    My regret is the coop and run- both too small.
    I also regret not putting up the different fencing for my horse that could also be used for chickens and goats.
