    Lisa, somebody gave me all those ameraucana eggs because he had too many. He's supposed to be calling me again this weekend to come get another 100 or so. I origanally intended on selling the chicks but after they hatched and I looked at those fluffy little cheeks, I decided to keep em for myself. I've got about 600 production reds in the incubators for Easter and about 100 ducks. I know, I've lost it.

    Edited to add: How do you know what they are going to look like when they are grown? I have some CRAZY colors.
