My fellow Chicken Addictives, I have been off the board for a few days, as I had a horse pass away. My favorite one! She had a big heart murmur, we did not know about. I am, back to tell you that I ended up with 17 out of 30 leghorn/barred rock chicks. Some of them already trying to peck at me the first day. Hmmm....mean little turds. They are all doing well. I have about 17 silkies in the bator, two barred rocks (supposed to hatch tomorrow), and about 20 white leghorns and barred rockers. I keep telling myself that that will be it for this year. Hmmm.......I doubt it!
