    Tell me about it.................they are all from Holderread's. When my son was in 4H, all his waterfowl came from them (many years ago). They were beautiful birds.

    I e-mailed them a few months ago asking about minimum orders and picking them up. They were willing to waive the minimum if I picked them up, then Mariah switched over to doves/pigeons.

    When I came in this evening I walked into the middle of a "getting a kitten" conversation. They have the allergies not me, I'm staying out of it.

    My big fat English Orp is broody and she's now happily sitting on 12 eggs. I'm not sure if the barnie eggs are fertile yet (blue boys have been super busy trying to mate though), but I'm going to find out. She's got some wellie eggs and an olive egger too.

    They're so sweet! I seriously love them. They seem very calm and strong and those little black freckles on their back are to die for. Yay breakfast babies!

    I was staring at my blue cochin pullet tonight (I love blue chickens), she looks like a fluffy bowling ball! I like big puffy chickens.

    Hope your boys managed to make "it" some how. On a side note, my sis asked me today if I w anted some peacock eggs to hatch:rolleyes:
    Just what I need....DH and my neighbors would never forgive me, LOL.

    All, my chicks hatched. The last two are fluffing in the bator:)

    Peas sell well! You don't have to keep them. I think they are not easy hatches however.

    I'm getting james Marie meat pharoah silver snoflake Manchurian reg Manchurian and xl tams and something else.
    The James Marie pharoahs have eggs too big to fit in a regular quail turner. He wouldn't sell me the eggs until I told him I had a humid air that would fit anything.

    It was like seeing a quail line... I had to stand in it!!

    Ali my bator sucks too . it ranges way up and down. I have a tough time with shipped eggs
    I was thinking of buying a genesis tonight but now not sure.

    The Silver eggs I got ranged from small to medium. They are not anywhere near as glossy as my blue ameraucana hen
