I am starting my 4th summer season raising home grown eggs. I purchased my first batch of RIR chicks and the hens are getting tired. My hens some 30 odd have been giving us maybe 1 egg a day for the past 2 months. Not even enough to fire up the ol' bator. It is time to raise another batch of chicks to replace them. I was hoping to order some BAs and BOs. I was thinking that I'll get them and have them in the brooder at the same time my kids get their broilers for the county fair (March 1). Guess I should have planned earlier!
