    I do hope so. Not sure where though. I should start saving for a motel or hotel room for at least an over night. [​IMG]

    The three I had were nice birds all hens and friendly too. Jumped right up on my knee to get at the bread in my hand.

    I'm taking orders for chickens that lay these eggs. I won't sell hatching eggs though. Hens only. I've been working hard on these.

    $2,000.00 each.

    yes it would but unfortunately they don't lay that way. Just pink or lighter pink.


    Gotta ask. Is anyone hatching any new breeds? Any one buying eggs from away to hatch?

    I candled some eggs today and tossed a few. I wasn't surprised. I think I just held them to long. I marked them that were sitting in the laundry room the longest. It's very cool in there what with the wind and the dryer vent.

    Anyone here got any advice on how to insure cold air not blowing in that thing?

    This is the kind of stuff I would never imagine or even think about until I see someone talking about it here. Thanks, 'cause it gives me a good idea of what to expect when I've got my own flock complaining during winter's worst! Gotta shovel some paths with some definition!
