    Oh I almost forgot to ask when do you normally start back up with sending eggs.

    It doesn't really snow here, maybe a dusting that is gone by 10am or something like that. But temps have been in the teens...Brrr!!!

    I'm a Wisconsin transplant to Kentucky, using my snow shovel for chicken poop these days...works great under the roost poles..lol!!!

    Depending on the weather..probably about February if they are going somewhere warm enough. Obviously, I can't ship them to any northern states that time of year.

    Too funny, I myself am a Wisconsin transplant to Okahoma. My husband is from here. I swear though it seems colder here than it did in Wisconsin. We don't get much snow here either, just about how you said it and maybe we might get an actual good snow once a year, but it is gone the next day. The rest ends up mostly being ice.

    good grief! I have huge black standard roos I tried to GIVE away and no one wanted them-I kept them as I have 1 black standard hen and a blue hen-They are going in a breeding pen next week! Im hoping my friend will take the 1 black roo off my hands since I have 2-the shine on these boys are amazing-big fat and fluffy!

    Quote:WOW!! Mine are usually gone before I even have a chance to decide to keep any. This time I am putting my foot down and keeping some of the girls..and just selling the Roos. My Silkies, Turkens and Cochins seem to always be in such demand that I seldom get to keep any for myself..lol!!

    Now I have to add Orps to that list. Can't seem to keep any extra Orps for myself either...everyone wants to buy them. I am currently working on two orders for 100 chicks, which will probably take me the rest of the winter because the girls aren't being very cooperative.

    wow-I would totally hatch out that many if I didnt mind getting divorced! I love orps!!! There is not alot of people around me that have chickens we have to travel a huge distance to get them! I m working on my community though and slowly people are "starting" to realy enjoy my addictions-

    Good thing I live by myself..lol!! I don't have anyone to tell me that I can't keep babies in the house. I'll be hatching all winter. I have Turkens and Cochins going out to the barn tomorrow to make room for babies hatching this weekend.

    I will have some eggs in the spring. In the standard I have the blue/black/splash. In the bantams I have almost every color imaginable.
