welcome! and thanks
I found that since I had ordered 2 assortment packages from the hatchery somebody there has a great formula for chicken math. Here's what they sent:
1 pair Buff Orp
1 pair White Cochin
1 pair Silver laced Wyandotte
4 Dark Cornish Pullets 1 Cock
4 Red Sex Link Pullets, 1 Cock
2 EE Cocks
2 Black Pullets, could be Jersey Giants, Austrolopes, or black sex links
1 unknown Pullet
4 Barred Rock Pullets 1 is a mix (posable Cuckoo x Leghorn?), 4 Cocks (besides the 5 pullets 1 cock I ordered)
4 Rhode Island Red Pullets, 1 Cock (which I ordered)
So I can't have JUST a pair, what if I loose one to a predator or illness.... Gotta make more of em, Call it an insurance policy, so 2=6 x 3 pairs.
They send me 2 EE Cocks, no hens for the boys, so 2 roo's 4 hens each, need 8 EE hens for the boys for entertainment.
I get Dark Cornish, A breed that takes up to 2 years to fully mature....We will call them Research and development....
OOOOHHHH and don't forget the enablers at BYC.com (has to be a link in the app) Once you see all the different colored eggs you now need 4 of each blue layers (Ancaunu and Cream Legbars) and a Roo and lets not forget the Marans (so hard to just pick one of the Marans)... And now I see Quail eggs, Speckled non the less,,,, I need a few of those as well
WOW. I burned my eyes reading the entire thread it took me from yesterday and today. Thanks for letting us to know all your adventures, journeys and experiences.
I saw you wrote a lot of spanish words(Castellan for me) at different posts and I have a question: Who is Mrs. Oz? Pardon my English is no as good as yours.
And now I'm subscribed
Dios te bendiga.
Sra. Oz es mi esposa. Ella nació en Filipinas, pero nos casamos en EE.UU.. Ella ha regresado a Filipinas para adoptar a nuestros hijos.
Mi Espanol es malo. Lo ciento.
JAJAJA. Thanks I'll be here watching your thread. Maybe Rosetta Stone will help me.
i added 12 dark cornish to my collection also. i would like to try them. If I get an extra roo from the hatch, I will put him over one or two of my locals to see what happens. I cant count research chickens either.
My list has finally come together
My confirmed finalized list
Lemon Cuckoo Orps
Silver Penciled Rocks
White Jersey Giants
The empasis is good dual purpose heritage lines.
Now I just have to round them up.
My next trip (tentative)
White Crested Black Polish
Swedish Flower Hens
Tolouse or Emben Geese
Black Giant Jersies
Emphasis will be pretty birds and exotics.

or google translate
Oz. What color of Dorkings are you taking? Just curious.
I'm from La Cruz, Sinaloa. And yes, it is. Aunque tiene demasiado narcotráfico sigue siendo un estado hermoso sobre todo Ceuta, Celestino Gazca, Mazatlan y Topolobampo. I miss my town.
I have plans to visit it this year(FOR X-MAS), if not I'll be there next SEMANA SANTA to the beach se ha dicho. JEJEJE
Yo soy de Zacatecas y mi esposo de Michoacan welcome!! We have lots of fun with Oz and his international flock.
