    I have eggs hatching next week in the incubator and broody hen. I would like to hatch a different breed or two before it gets cold here in the South. I have a small, but heated fully enclosed chicken coop with concrete floor. I have a spring flock of 7 golden comet and 1 rhode island red hens, and 4 (soon to be two) rhode island red roosters, pure stock from TSC. (I know the comets are a cross from Delaware and RIR) The hatchlings should still be sex-linked. My chickens are disease free, free range, and happy.

    I would like to swap a dozen or two at a time with someone in the continental US, preferably in the Southeast, for some eggs of pure easter eggers, cochins, or lavender orpingtons.

    I have a pen of EE/OE/CE & Bantam cochins but there may be a week or 2 wait. I have 2 orders to fill & the girls are coming out of a molt.

    Sounds great. Get back in touch with me when you're ready and we'll see how our girls are doing.
