    I was planning to hatch in December, then I remembered it's our Christmas in Iowa. So then I considered November, but who would care for them over Christmas? I think I'm going to have to be responsible and just put everything on hold for a year. :(

    I was wanting a new bloodline, but not ready to pay that much. But I guess maybe by spring I'll be ready for that...

    My broody is setting on sussex eggs. I was going to sell her chicks and replace them with diff breeds I've been wanting, but maybe not I'll let her raise them. It's just so hard to know anything about chickens.
