    Yep, got the notice yesterday. Can't wait to order more chicks for next year. Prices have gone up a little, about .07 each. But there's no inflation. [​IMG]

    DH and I can't decide when it would be best to start next year. Hard to tell when it will warm up. Dang. I hate to wait. [​IMG]

    Yeah, but they say order early so you get a good pick. They don't ship until Feb. anyway. I'm trying to decide when in Feb. it's going to be warm enough, here in Colorado, to get chicks. Or, do I have to wait until March? [​IMG]

    well, it will be cold, but I ordered mine anyway.. They're gonna live in the attached garage for a couple of months anyway with lamps and all that so the only real worry about the cold is the transit.

    woo..

    I order things like Sexlinks and Cornish x's because I can't make thoes. I also order birds to refresh my stock, or order birds that are purebred. I have almost all mixes and they aren't the best at the egg thing.

    Well, I'm going to hatch some, but I buy 50 at a time, brood them and sell them. Then I bring in 50 more. I figure I can actually bring in 50 ever 3-4 weeks with the brooders I picked up for cheap, but the reality of it is "Roosters" Yep, that's why I can't just hatch my own. Nobody wants that many roosters. [​IMG]

    well as for me, this is my first lot of chicks. I haven't built a bator yet and don't have the time available right now to build one or monitor the process. I plan on hatching out my own from this first batch. I imagine I will buy some from time to time but hopefully the birds i've selected will produce enough to replenish their count on their own. When I do need to refresh, it will probably only be a few here or there which I can get from local feed stores. (RIR's, Leghorns, etc)

    Hi,
    On the Mcmurray website it doesn't show what pullets would be most items were showing up as straight runs, their catalog has a pullet, straight run or something else, why doesn't it list it like that on their website?
    Thank in advance for help.
