    most of us that order a lot of chicks are either raising them to sell meat or eggs, or to resell at auction, etc. As a side benefit, we get to play with a large flock of beautiful feathered friends. [​IMG] I think we all end up with a few favorites that are kept just because we love em.

    I have 54 layers and 100+ new chicks in the grow pen. What I currently have are for laying eggs to sell. I live on a farm, and have plenty of space and good buildings to expand if needed. Later in the spring, I will be getting 50-75 Cornish Rocks for meat to feed us for a year.

    Then there are a few folks that just don't know how to resist Chicken Math. [​IMG]
