    I know it's hard to give up ones that you're attached to and are perfectly good chickens. I'm going through it still too. But think of the end goal. It's worth it.

    Yes! What's up with breeders and FB?? They are all on there, almost competing with one another. I signed up just to have some breeder connects. I do the same thing...just watch them go back and forth, picking apart each other's birds.

    This is so true!! I wasted a lot of time with shipped eggs. Better to just buy straight from reputable breeders.

    I'm waiting on Judy Lee. She is the best breeder in the US for the color silkies I want to breed. Unfortunately everyone wants to buy from her and she doesn't do a wait list. You just have to keep checking in with her every few weeks as hers grow out. I don't care how long it takes, I'm determined to buy birds from her someday.

    Almost? It's like a constant infomercial!! Egg color is impossible to judge online, some breeders don't post ANY pictures of their stock, some never stop. I tried REAL hard to hatch some LP eggs, I still have some in the bator for the next two weeks but that is where I got this rumpless BCM.

    I know! And the prices they are selling eggs/chicks/birds for is crazy. But as soon as they post for sale, someone is all over it. I'm hoping to get there someday and have this hobby pay for itself.

    So did you just contact Paul Smith directly and inquire about chicks? I tried to find a website for him, but didn't see one.

    Look him up in the Ameraucana breeders directory. It's online. If you email him, he will reply

    Perfect. That's what I found. I just wasn't sure if he had a website as well.

    I never found one either, but he will answer his email. I highly recommend him. He's professional, helpful, and his birds are high quality
