    I was able to hatch some chicks. Out of 18 eggs 14 hatched. I would have thought they would have been a little darker, maybe a little more colorful. Are these the correct color for chicks? They are a lively bunch, though not as flighty as other leghorns I have hatched.

    I see your in eastern Oklahoma. I'm in western Arkansas. Did you get the eggs shipped or did you find some locally? I would really be interested in finding some locally.

    Donnie, I don't know of many that are breeding these, and only a handful of people have my line

    I don't either, but in an earlier post he was looking for breeders in eastern Oklahoma. I thought maybe he had found someone, especially after you asked where he got them. I was thinking 14 out of 18 is to good for shipped eggs, but maybe not.

    Made some very hard decisions this morning....

    I'm going to get out of the chicken "business". A few other reasons, but mainly my health. I just can't do the things I like to do anymore it seems. Of course I'll still have chickens in the backyard, but the breeding is going to have to be put on the back burner. I will be selling everything...

    incubators, coops, birds etc. Birds will be auctioned or sold privately, everything else... I'll probably put a craigslist ad together.
