I found chicks this morning at the farmer's market. They had Rhode Island Reds, Barred Rocks and Easter Eggers. I chose two little Easter Eggers (I know, I know - I only went for one). Cross your fingers that they are hens! ***** I recently purchased some australorp eggs on eggbid. Unfortunately, when candling them at day 7, all the yolks were busted up inside the eggs. I was able to salvage 5 eggs. Yesterday, only one of the remaining five eggs hatched. Wouldn't you know it she's the cutest thing I ever laid eyes on. We have 19 one month old chicks in the garage brooder, but they are so rambunctious I think they would surely kill it if I tried to combine them. Anyone in Maryland or Virginia have a single chick they would part with in order to keep the little one company. I simply cannot carry it around all day with me and she's peeping her head off. Thanks.
