That's a great goal to have super variety! I've found that the eggs that were shipped to me from 4 hours away looked just as bad if not worse than the ones shipped across the country from me and actualy had worse hatch rates. I'm not sure if that's a rare thing or had to do with bad packaging or what but I've decided that shipped eggs are shipped eggs and they're going to get knocked around no matter what lol. You really have it bad! I may not have much land but I'm thankful to be in an agricultural zone. I have, out in the main coop, 24 adults, 2 young silkies hatched in December (both suspected boys), and 15 black copper Marans chicks from NYD hatch and through February. In the big garage brooder I have about 22 chicks growing out. 1 rhodebar cockerel, 1 hatchery silkie, 1 rhode island red cockerel (was supposed to be a pullet), and a bunch of CCL. In the screen porch brooder, there are 9 poults growing out to join the 5 turkeys I already have (extra toms will go to freezer camp). The poults are mottled black, silver dappled, and 1 royal palm. Plus, there are 7 meaties in with them and 5 lavender ameraucana chicks. In the bedroom brooder, 8 little bantam polish, 4 bearded silkies, and 2 lavender ameraucanas are waiting to relocate to one of the brooders outside. For now, they're hanging out with all the Ams, EEs, and OEs that are for sale lol. Wow, I have more than I thought! I seriously need to get my breeding pens built so I can have more room to house all these chicks! They won't stay little for long!
