I had an unfortunate incident occur where 12 of my most prized birds were victims to a two legged predator. I lost all of my gorgeous silkies that I hatched from Flufnstuff, my gorgeous araucana roo and hen, my salmon faverolle hen and my whole flock of gorgeous light brahmas. So in an effort to put my stock back together of quality birds I went on an egg/chick shopping spree. Question. At what point do you have too many chicks? Is it when your husband starts raising his eyebrows? Or is it when you actually forget what breeds you have? Since this unfortunate incident I have hatched 12 black/lavendar Orbs, 5 turkeys, received two split shipments from ideal with friends and now have two dozen eggs in the incubator. I'm thinking I still need a few more.
