    I only have one hen laying at the moment, and she is an EE who lays a blue/green egg. She is a wheaten color. I have no idea who the father would be, but it would either be a game cock or a speckled sussex, as they both roam together. My guess, is more likely the speckled sussex, as I have more of them and they are aggressively after her. So it would be interesting to see what comes of that!!! Anyway, I may have three or four by saturday if you want me to save them.

    Hey, Tony, just to let you know, I may have more for you than you think, LOL. I have 11 dozen eggs in my fridge already, so I think you're going to get the overflow for your bator! If you want me to stop at a certain number, better say so, LOL. Already started saving them for you to pick up on Saturday.

    Well, I wasn't going to give you the 11 dozen, since they were already in the fridge so may not hatch as well, but I betcha I'll have more than two dozen for you. Gee, I didnt realize you had a bator that large! Uh, oh, you might get yourself in all kinds of hot water with that!



    ***P.S. all for the same price you paid last time. You're just keeping me from running out of fridge room by taking this many off my hands, LOL. Now that I know you have that much room in your bator...hmm.

    i would love to have 11 doz. i just can't pay for that many about 25$ worth will be good ,any other time i would say lay it on me but work has been so slow its starting to worry me ,but it has gave me time to upgrade the bator i'm a packrat so i had the parts laying around for this one its a little big its a old fishing cooler over 3' long
    with a sportsman thermostat (from ebay) 2 25watt bulbs( in case on goes out) some flat rock in the bottom( to hold heat) a old pc fan and cooler bolted to 1'' shaft on a stand (so it can turn back and forth )with a water pump on a timer that pumps water in to a 5gal. bucket bolted to one side a valve in the bottom of the bucket so i can control how fast the water runs out bungee cords control the speed of tilt so every thing is slow and smooth hears some pics with two shelfs in it i thank thay is room for more i put 3 egg cartons in it to show the size [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
