    I don't keep track of that sort of information, like how many chickens I own, how much I've spent on hatching eggs or how many chicks I've hatched. So when my husband asks any of those questions, I can say with absolute honesty, "Gee, I don't know, honey."

    I'm not sure how many hatches I did, but it totaled up to be about 200 chicks and 100 guinea keets. [​IMG]

    Its not hard for me to keep up with. I have chicks hatching every 7 days an take a break when school lets out for the summer to take the kids places.

    "Some.". Boy, that covers a multitude!
