    Wow that's what I'm thinking of for our backyard. Would really love to have something like this for next summer. Something to spend the tax check on!

    Listen I am going to the Indy Irish Fest tomorrow. While I am gone, please do not go over 200 posts. If you get that far, just call a time out until Sunday ok? I don't want to miss anything while I'm enjoying the good music. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    The silkies are still laying, and I think it could be a clutch. I brought the eggs in tonight because it is supposed to get down to 37 degrees. They aren't sitting, so I figured it would be okay. I plan on putting them back in the box in the morning.

    So Bradselig if you see this, I have 7 bearded silkie eggs now lol.

    I hope I am not messing up anything by bringing the eggs into the house.

    Actually his neighbors get a better view from their house vs watching their tv, and they have friends come over too. So far all of his neighbors think its cool and have not complained. He can set it up to use head phones with it as well. It does put some light out too, but so far for him, no problems with it. He takes it down when hes done and sets it back up when he wants to.

    others have explained the heritage vs hatchery pretty well. I never understood the difference until I saw them first hand at a byc'ers house and his langshans. If I hadn't known better i would have thought his breeders were emus! They were huge compared to the hatchery ones I've seen before. They are definitely on my "Breeds to Own" list. Here is another example of heritage vs hatchery.
    Heritage
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Exibition-H...994?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item25829b8072
    Hatchery

    Welcome! In my signature, you'll find a link to our members page which includes our members list. If you'd like to be added to the members list, send me a PM that included:
    Username
    County
    City
    Species (chicken, duck, goat, etc)
    Breed
    Variety/color
    Large fowl or bantam
    If you breed them

    Obviously just give the info you are comfortable giving.

    it honeslty all depends on your current roo.


    im far from an expert! I have good hatches with most local eggs and some shipped (my only 100% hatch was from shipped eggs) and I've also experience HORRIBLE hatch rates. Even with the horrible hatches, I'm still addicted to it and find it more enjoyable than just buying chicks (which I still enjoy that ok lol).
