    Hi all I'm new to this board but have been a member of BYC as a lurker mostly [​IMG].

    I have 26 eggs in the bator ....28 chickens in the coop...2 hens in bumblefoot-bay (hen hospital) and 6 chicks in a brooder. Do I fit in? LOL

    Anyway glad to be here!

    Well Carol ....Lets see, I first put in White leghorns then added some surprise eggs bought from a farmer at the market thinking they prob. wouldn't be fertile but 7 were [​IMG] then I went back and got a doz more and will candle in a few days to see how many are going to grow.

    They would be layers and perhaps mixed...that's the surprise! I love my generic breeds lol....I do mixes with a very tall Silkie rooster on all sorts of hens and are they ever gorgeous. Obviously I don't show and these chickens are my sweeties.

    How about you? what do you have and like to do? I'm nosey too [​IMG]

    I live on the South shore of Montreal, Quebec...where winter has finally found us :mad:

    Quote:Thanks Spotted Crow (love your name) I'm going to have a lot more of the colors since I hatched a lot of chickies [​IMG]

    Oh and BTW.....I have Standard Silkies that lay a beautiful rich and shiny green egg .......yep green egg and unfortunately I can't send eggs to the States. Many people have asked for them.

    Sorry Spotted Crow...didn't mean Standard as in size but as in looks just like any other Silkie and is not a mix which most people think because she lays green eggs:). But a lot of my roos seem to be quite large compared to the usual seen in photos so maybe they came from across the water at one time...who knows?

    Those sound like some good looking eggs and I seem to have a thing for good lookiing eggs:lol:.

    Rainbow- I love the different colors eggs too. I just have white & brown ones so far. I do have a couple EE hens, so I'm waiting on blue or green!

    I have a hodge-podge of breeds, and alot of mixed silkies. I have chanteclers (YAY-Canada!), polish, cochins, silkies, OEGB's, a brahma, a Iowa Blue, a cornish, naked necks and showgirls!
