    Poor Ollie's gone broody but, alas, we have no rooster. I'd like to let her raise some babies. She's a good girl, never pecks anyone, and has a good temperament. So I hate to let her set on *gasp* golf balls!

    Would some kind soul be willing to donate half a dozen standard breed eggs to Ollie? She prefers easy to care for breeds without feathered legs. It gets cold here in the winter, so breeds that tolerate cold weather are happier here. Also, Ollie and the other girls (Australorps, Plymouth Rocks, Delaware, Speckled Sussex, Welsummer) would prefer to live with someone as big as they are, so bantams wouldn't work. I live in NW Ohio (Oak Harbor) and would be willing to come pick up the eggs if you're not too far away. If you're farther away, I would gladly reimburse you for the cost of shipping 6 eggs. I have PayPal to take care of that if you like.

    Thanks for taking a look! [​IMG]

    Awww...poor Ollie! I know all to well what that's like. I have buff orps and barred rock mixes - take your pick. I'm not sure where Oak Harbor is but I am happy to mail. Just pm me.

    Oooh! That sounds like an interesting mix (I checked out your website). Elyria is not far from where I live. I could drive out tomorrow if that works OK for you. Just PM me your address and I'll use my Garmin to tell me the way! [​IMG] Ollie would be thrilled!

    I'm actually in North Ridgeville. I am home by 6 so c'mon over!!! I'll pm you my address. I haven't made it out there yet to collect today's eggs but I get 5-7 a day from my buff orps. If you want the barred rocks, I'll have to go to DBF's to get those. I also have 30+ barred rock chicks that hatched Saturday if that would help Ollie. Stay tuned for PM!

    Michelle, I agree! [​IMG]

    Is North Ridgeville over by Cleveland? That's a hike for me. [​IMG] How about we wait and see if anyone a bit closer replies?

    BTW, I have a soft spot for Barred Rocks. They are such characters! [​IMG]

    It's only about 20 miles west of Cleveland. Know where Great Northern mall is? Only a couple exits past that. Actually closer than Elyria. I pm'd you so just give me a call if you want 'em.

    Now I'm embarrassed, I have never been to the Great Northern Mall! [​IMG] LOL I will shoot you a PM within a couple hours to let you know for sure.
