    I am new to chickens, but am really loving them! I have OEG Bantams, Silver Spangled Hamburg Bantams, and some Bantam Easter Eggers. (I am partial to the smaller varieties) I am really going to try and improve my Hamburgs, try showing (never done this before) and just get more involved. I look forward to any advice I can get on this website! I will also be looking to purchase some hatching eggs in the spring from as far away as I reasonably can ( I have been told the Hamburg lines here are inbred because there are not very many breeders in this area, so I want to work on this).

    [​IMG] The problem with shipping from a long distance, is the eggs are more likely to be damaged in the process. Some people actually fly out and bring the eggs back with them on the plane.

    That may end up happening, lol! Out of some 28 eggs I tried to hatch, only 3 actually hatched.
