    Some fine looking chicks there Sandy.

    Last Hatch? Yeah, sure. Only if your hens completely quit laying and no one will sell you any eggs. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    pinball with there fellow bator mates. It is a wonder any of

    What prettie little fat things. I am not hatching anymore until the fall except whatever the broodies do. I usually let them hatch to get them off the nest and back to laying.

    I'm done till fall too when the eggs in the bator are done......a whole month later than what I originally said!! Probably a good thing it's getting to hot to ship!!

    I'm working on my last hatch for a while too (I think). I'm out of room, and want to grow out what I have and then pick through them.

    Bamachicken~ Do you have blacks seperate from your blues, or all together? If you have seperate blacks, do you have eggs to sell?

    Congrats Sandy! Those are darlin' little babies. [​IMG]

    Now, please tell me more about this "AAA for hatchers". [​IMG]

    I am diggin' a deep hole and the brooders keep fillin' up. Serious trouble here, I tell ya. [​IMG] The culling will soon begin..I smell relief on the horizon. [​IMG]
