    Set 48 bantam cochin eggs today. Got them from 3 different folks and didn't have one broken egg in the bunch!! Only 1 or 2 loose aircells....the PO was good to me. I am excited to have a HUGE assortment...silver penciled, golden laced frizzle, partridge, barred, white, blue, black, blue birchen, columbian...what more could a bantam cochin lover want?? I was real careful to check out the parent stock so I anticipating quite a few really nice ones.

    Seriously! Our "plan" is to grow them out a few months and then select the ones we want to keep and sell the others. However, there is a saying about plans...and mice...and men...isn't there??

    Joy1-You're suppose to stop when you run out of room? Now you tell me! It is those adolescents that were given to me that threw in a monkey wrench. [​IMG]

    Thanks all...I think staring at eggs is sort of a Zen thing. It takes you away from everything else in your world!
