    I'm in Moscow Mills, down 61 hwy from you. I have 17 lt brahma chicks in the garage right now and a few more dozen eggs ready to go into the bator. If you're interested let me know and we can work something out.

    I gotta think about this one... I would love to get some chicks if that would be ok... I will let you know if i am able to pick them up! Are they bantams or standard and do they go broody very often???

    These are standards. I hatched these in an incubator although they were started under a hen. This hen had 47 eggs under her and they were a staggered hatch. I stole them and candled and 25 made it into the bator. I got them in bator and the next day I already had peeping.

    My first round of lt brahmas never went broody, but this pen I'm always fighting to keep the girls off the nest. I have 14 hens and 4 of them have successfully set on eggs.

    I promised hubby I would sell these off, he figures I have way more birds than necessay. Of course I didn't mention that I set 30 more eggs last night. My fridge is overflowing with eating eggs and thought might as well hatch them out and sell 'em.

    Just drop me a pm if you decide you would like some/all and we can get all the details worked out.
