Ok, so we moved to our 13 acres in December and I wanted to get a few chickens, like maybe 6 hens. I waited patiently for February to roll around before I started looking. I started checking the internet and found all the hatching eggs for sale on ebay. So I bid on a few, after all I wanted a little variety. I bid on 12+ Golden Comets, 12+ Barred Rocks and 10+ mixed lot. (I bid on few others too but fortunately was outbid.) What I ended up with was 52 eggs! That's okay since they were sent through the mail I figured I'd lose a lot of them. I ran out and got my 9200 when I started winning the auctions. Two boxes arrived last Wed. and one arrived on Friday. No broken eggs. The first two batches went in late Wed. and the last about midday Friday. I put together a candler and since I was turning them by hand I couldn't resist checking a few out, almost every day. I was very excited when I started seeing signs of development. Yesterday I candled all the eggs and took out 3 clears and a rotten one. So 29 of the 8 day eggs are developing, and today I looked at a few of the 6 day eggs and many of them are on their way too. Do you think I'll get 6 hens out of this??? Even my dogs think I've lost it because I spend so much time looking at that white box on the table. My husband knows I'm nuts but he's been traveling this week. Just wait until I show him one of the chicks doing a jig inside it's egg. I was totally in awe! I started looking at more eggs on ebay yesterday and had to smack myself upside the head. Is there any hope for me?
