The "Plastics" are 3 7 month old hatchery quality white Jersey Giants (roo and two pullets), the "Metals" are 3 Jersey Giants we hatched from a breeders stock (2 black pullets and a blue roo)at the end of August. The Gingera ,a cin queen and a red americauna who are the only ones laying ) and two one week old farm store chicks, a speckled sussex and a buff orp. Plus 9 in the incubator at day 16. We live in the Midwest with horses, dogs, cats and bunnies.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! That's a very interesting flock you have growing there. You must be kept very busy with all your other animals too. Wishing you the very best of luck with your impending hatch :fl It sure is great to see when they emerge from the egg and you get to meet your new babies. I love incubating and hatching and it never gets boring.

    Wishing you the very best of luck for the future. Hope you will be able to post some pics when you have some hatchers. You can't beat chick pics!!

    Enjoy BYC :frow
