    Quote:Half of them are going to be added to the original flock and the other half are becoming my first flock. They were all hatched from my co-workers flock and she is feeding my newest addiction by giving me half. So no money making just family making!

    they are always the best as the color and type is always a surprise i would always like mutt eggs rather then pure as it makes it more exciting to guess what you are going to get
