I hatched out 9 chicks and the dh said if I wanted to keep any of them, I had to get rid of some. I gave 2 of my girls, "Spook" an Ancona, and "Bobblewrap" a Brown Leghorn/ Polish cross (VERY unattractive bird, unfortunately) that I hatched from my old roo. I had to decide on my 2 least favorite birds, but as I love them all, it was still hard. I gave them to my friend who has 3 hens who are no longer laying, and these girls are only 6, 7 months old, so they wiill be in a good home providing eggs for her and her son, so its not SO bad. I just really want to be able to keep some of these chicks, as they are going to be beautiful birds, I think. Mille fleur D'Uccle daddy and EE mamas. They all have fluffy faces and feathered legs, whhich I LOVE in a chicken, especially the fluffy faces. I'm so exciited to see what they look like, and as I don't know if they are boys or girls, I don't know which I am going to keep. Anyway, I guess I need to get used to this if I plan on continuing to hatch eggs.
