    That's right, I'm picking up some hatchery stock ameraucanas (Which will probably be EEs, but we have a pretty reliable hatchery here) and getting a ton of chickens from the poultry swap! We're building the new coop right now, all that's left is the run and the nest boxes. Give me about a week and you can look at all my new babies! [​IMG]

    I can't wait to get pictures! The coop though is an old dog house that only needed a few fix ups, and then I have my enormous main coop. x3

    Um .... err .. about 100 +++ Chickens ( Not counting the babies or the eggs in the incubator, or the eggs under my 2 broody hens ... [​IMG] )
    I have 2 "Coops" They're really just two old rooms in a barn. Then I have 1 very, very large Hutch that has 1 broody hen setting on 12 guineas, and 1 chicken, and 2 guinea keets. Hutch #2 has 1 broody setting on 7 eggs. I just found her in the barnyard setting this morning ... naughty lil' henny! [​IMG]
    I have 6 quail eggs and 2 chicken eggs in the incubator as well ... got a house full! [​IMG]

    We have 15 chickens. 6 adults and 10 young ones. Not too much but in my imagination I have over 1000 chickens.
