    Hey K
    Texas, I hope you have a good hatch.
    Ninja you are too funny [​IMG]
    I am glad to have Charlie babies too. YOu can imagine how I am fretting over them. Are they warm enough, Are they too cold. Are they too crowded. I have them in the house right now cause it turned off so cold here again for a few days. Will be Spring like by the weekend.
    I just want to hatch a lot of chicks from him right now. My understanding from major Orpington Breeder here in Uk is that Jan, Feb and Mar hatches produce the larger fowl. We will see.
