    a 5250 means lock-up for 14 days

    whats the term for 3 weeks in a nut house? Maybe a whole bator cycle may break the spell.

    i think I put you down for 15 but its a rough estimate - I will take what you've got - up to 4 days old - even those almost bantam size buff orps of yours.

    Thanks Pig

    when you put them side by side the buffs do look like bantams [​IMG]
    with just 3 britt hens in the coop the max # of 4 day old britt eggs will be 12
    so i'll put another dozen buffs in for ya , no point in shipping only a few eggs
    i will keep all or atleast most of the females that i end up with from this 1st hatch of britts
    after that i'll see if i can sell off a few breeding pairs for $30 a pop.
    that should put me in some extra fence & feed money

    time for bed
    I have a guy comming by early tomorrow to buy
    some 10 week old buff pullets before i head off to work

    I cant believe you guys write down all your chickens. I prefer ignorance is bliss.
    Did you buy them?
    Ditto...see above note to hfr
    I had a feeling that was a yes on buying more eggs.
