    Kelly G It's like herding cats!

    The roos (cockrels) are putting on their "moves" for the ladies. If I were a pullet, I'd be impressed!

    Anyway, I just purchased a Brinsae inculbator, and would love to practice with some of my own eggs (eventually, I'd love to buy REALLY NICE quality eggs to hatch some high quality birds, but I think I need to practice hatching on something that costs less than $20/dozen - I'm pretty sure there is a learning curve, here!)...but my EE pullets are not yet laying.

    Once they start to lay, how long until I can try and hatch some of my own?

    Here are a couple of photos from a few weeks back - the boys are quite handsome!!!



    ....and one photo of the ladies:

    EE's are late bloomers. But once they lay watch out ! I love EE's. They were always my best layers. And friendly too.
