    re: The TJ chicks
    I wanted to keep one, but in order to do that I would've had to have kept two. I'm keeping the Lt. Brahma x BLRW and the farmers market chick, plus I'm hoping for a Marans or two from Wednesday's 2-egg hatch. Not knowing if the Marans are going to hatch one or two or any, I had to hold back taking the BLRW chicks (4) to the swap meet in case I needed a companion chick for the Marans if a solo. Suddenly things were getting problematic as far as brooder space and cage space and age groups....plus the fact that realistically I have room for maybe 4-6 more in the coop. I may try again later when things get all sorted out and roos/pullets are determined and birds are older and I have more of an idea for picking and choosing, but the easiest thing was to free up the big brooder. Besides, 26 chicks make A LOT of noise and poop.
    I hadn't realized what a luxury it was to have just a few chicks to maintain.

    And I still want to add some blue-layers... Going for the rainbow basket.

    Over the last two decades we learned to laugh it off. We were not laughing while living it.

    I think BYC is the worst for my phone, I can watch Netflix and you tube, check out any web site, get on BYC and have a post 3/4 wrote out and BAM! phone starts vibrating, froze up, lose it all because I have to shut it off to get it to work again, anyone else have that problem?

    Yep!! Or multi-quoting when trying to catch up and it drops it all and then can't remember where you started from... BYC is NOT phone friendly...
