    The only way I can continue to be a hatchaholic is to hatch small amounts at a time. Works for me

    I brought home 2 baby dark brahmas last year at this time and vowed I would never have babies in the winter again! I kept them in my laundry room in a playpen and things went well for a few weeks but, then, they got bored, of course, and tried to come into the rest of the house whenever I forgot to shut the door! They tried to eat my house plants and get on the furniture and poop and... and... well, good luck!!

    We have apparently been inflicted with "Empty Bator" syndrome for the past 6 months.

    Just when I think it is going to clear up, we manage to have a relapse.

    2 dz eggs arriving Wednesday, Golden Cuckoos just beginning to lay, oh my.
