    I understand. I want to keep them all, but there is simply no room here for that. I let broodies have their stint of motherhood then sell the babies. I always want to watch them grow up all the way.

    I am splitting an order of 15 with a friend, but we will keep them as chicks since I have little ones that will enjoy watching chicks, and she has a mature flock that the new ones will have to be integrated into. I have a feeling that I might take all the chicks and flee to Canada.[​IMG]

    I felt that way last year when my Uncle and I halfed an order. I raised them and felt like I was sending my children away. "Don't forget they like to be read to and also like a few worms before bed, oh and the runt likes to be cuddled after eating....... [​IMG]
