Ok, it started like this . . . . . . A guy at work was going to drown 14 chicks, he didn't have room for them. I couldn't stand by and let this happen. So, took them home, raised them until I could pick out 3 little hens. Gave him back the other 11 chicks. Someone stole 2 of them. So, I moved to this house with 1 little OEG hen. Nadine (on this site) was nice enough to sell me an Araucana rooster, named Boom-Boom. The hen hated him from the moment that he moved in. So. . . . I bought 2 hens, a Barred Rock and an Ameraucana. Then I bought a LG incubator. After a couple of tweaks on the thermostat, I put all of the eggs I had on hand (2) in the incubator. Then luvmychicks sent me 6 eggs from her Ameraucana hens, 3 green, 3 blue. I also put them in the incubator. Like I said . . . . HERE WE GO ! I have found the cure for chicken fever . . . . more chicks ! Today, I picked up 15 eggs at the PO. They are cuckoo marans from bantaman13. They will go in the incubator tonight. As I type this, my son is putting together a hatcher for me. It is made out of a frozen steak styrofoam box. I have 2 eggs that will hatch in about 3 days. We need to get this hatcher done today so I can put the eggs in it tomorrow. I noticed on a thread today that TSC was getting their chicks today. I call my local TSC and find out the chicks arrived this morning. I tried not to speed as I drove to town. I came home with 12 pullet chicks, 4 each of Easter Egger (Ameraucana), White Leghorn and Barred Rock. After all, won't 2 little chicks look lonely in the brooder ?
