    I finally broke down and ordered 50 MORE chicks from Welp! [​IMG]

    I ordered 25 Welsummers & 25 Catalanas. EEEK! The latter just looked SO pretty and are good dual purpose birds. Plus the slightly tinted eggs did me in. [​IMG]

    I ordered Straight Run because I plan to process all the roos and keep a few hens for perpetuating the breed. If they won't sit then I will have my Bantams raise their young. (I have it all planned out. Sort of!) [​IMG]

    Now...I gotta work on fixing the other outbuilding into an even BIGGER coop for the setters. [​IMG]

    What am I going to do with all those eggs? Why...SELL them! They have a farmer's market out here and you can join for nothing...just sit there and sell eggs! [​IMG]

    Just wanted to share because I am SO excited...BUT terrified at the same time. I got my first brooder chicks (15) and tried on this venture a couple of years ago. Steadily have added some from neighbor's farm and now...

    I AM ADDICTED! [​IMG]

    Peace-
