    Yes, we are selling some of the pups. I think what we have left are Red Tri's. 3 females and a male. I think somewhere around $350-400.

    I went with size 11 and the girls seem to have plenty of room for a little growth still. 11 is recommended for breeds like Plymouth Rocks, RIR, Leghorn roosters... if you have Jersey Giants or large roosters they reccommend the 12.

    Any more info you have on the necropsy @ Purdue would be appreciated. From what I read on the Purdue Animal disease site, a chicken necropsy charge is at least $115.
    Appreciate the insight!

    Those of you that are planning to attend the bloomington chicken show, can you tell me more about it? Are there lots of blue chickens, Chickens with long tails, Heritage Chickens? I'm trying to decide weather to take my children there or to a customer appreciation in Edinburgh where there will be a bouncy house and snow cones.

    You can put several on each chicken for identification.

    Blue, blue, blue, chicken 1. Blue, blue, red, chicken 2. Orange, red, green, chicken 47.

    Plus it's pretty. The hens can compare bracelets and show off for the roosters. Some care should be taken to avoid tacky color combinations. You wouldn't want to shame a hen. She might stop laying. Also, roosters should have manly colors. No pink.

    You posts never cease to amuse! There was much consideration put into the decision for colors. I thought about adding some bling, but figured they'd just try to eat it. But on the plus side, I'd have shiny chicken poop!
