    My extra roos go to the auction. A friend wants some new laying hens so some are going to his house and some of the pullets will also go to the poultry auction.....after I decide which ones I'm adding to my flocks.

    That's okay, I ordered ameraucana eggs which were delivered today, another dozen ameraucana for next week, plus a dozen cubalaya. I just hatched nearly 40 chicks this week! [​IMG] Oh yeah, then I ordered easter egger eggs which will arrive this weekend! [​IMG]


    Good thing I have two broodies! [​IMG]

    Plus... I'm buying another incubator. [​IMG]

    OK... I am a complete newbie and this site has been so helpful! I am trying hard not to go overboard. I have a homemade incubator - a converted, standard upright freezer - with way too much room for eggs! I am trying to convince hubby that chickens are a great idea, before my blue/splash Orp eggs arrive! And then I hear of people having multiple 'bators running and I don't feel quite so bad! Thanks!!!
