    Quote:I hope your little one pulls through! I had one with a severe respiratory infection that pulled through at 4 weeks of age. It was a very stressful time.

    I have a Hudan hen that hatched 2 mutt eggs, a polish hen that hatched 2 mutt eggs and an Australorp hen that ended up with 5 hatchlings. I think the father to all are my gorgeous, red Polish boy, Hector. I feel a little like a "chicken mill" letting these eggs hatch but I will be a responsible chicken owner and keep them all. Hope I don't have two many roosters because I'm having trouble finding places for bachelors to live. I have four in my horse barn and two in my back yard so that I only have one with my hens! I love chickens!

    We just received our first chicks, 4 BPR's and 2 RIR's. I could not imagine having 20+ at one time!!!
