    Yesterday we stopped in at Runnings, and not like I don't have enough chores already; I decieded to check to see if they still had chicks. They did! My husband knows that will keep me home! LOL He said he didn't care if I got more, because I got 54 chicks on March 17th, then I got 2 more on April 5th, and I already had 22 laying hens but had lost 3 of them.
    I seen they had black sex links and production reds, so I got a dozen of each. My daughter was using her calculator and this adds up to 99 chickens total. I must be in love with chickens. LOL

    Absolutely adorable! I can't get over how blue your daughter's eyes are, either.

    Those chicks are going to be fantastic layers! 99 chickens! Sounds like you have a great hubby there!

    Thanks everyone! I am afraid I will have to keep the shotgun handy when she gets older. If she could catch all of them she would kiss them all. I have a huge demand for eggs and can't seem to keep up with my orders. My hubby two years ago wouldn't let me have chickens and now he's likeing the egg industry. LOL He kinda likes the girls and it's one way to keep me home off of road construction. LOL

    chickenranchwife: How to you sell your eggs? Do you advertise or is it word of mouth?
    I am not much of a salesperson and always wind up giving my eggs away to church people. Wish I could at least sell enough to pay for the hens feed![​IMG]

    Yes,,,you will need a shotgun with that set of baby blues, she is adorable, what a picture....lol
    Oh yes, and the chicks are cute too.
    As far as selling the eggs I don't know if you all have www.craigslist.org in your areas but I am sure most likely you do. I posted an add on there, it is free and was overwhelmed with people who wanted fresh eggs. If your feed store don't sell them put an add up. I got sick of giving them away, the feed price keeps going up, plus the care involved,and if they want them they can buy them!!! lol
    I paid $2.75 a chick this year from my feed store, they seem to go up every year and he sold every order he got in. They were all gone in no time. Cicks were a hot commodity in the area this year.[​IMG]
