Yay! Will definitely make it next time. Since last writing I’ve had 3 hatch & seem to be good. Little strange that they are 3 different colors for same breed of chicken :hmm. (Blue Maran) Just happy 3 hatched.
I’ve been on here all night last night, reading & my brain feels scrambled.(No pun intended) I still have 3 that havent pipped or anything. Another one pipped but did not make it🥺. So out of a dozen, I have 3 live chicks 6 bad eggs & 3 unknown.
I tried to candle them but all three look completely different, not to mention they’re dark brown eggs (I do not recommend for a 1st timer).
So one is, from what I can tell, solid (no air pocket)
One has air pocket on both ends (90%sure that one is dead) & last but not least, one looks kinda ”normal”. With a pretty obvious, but small air pocket. So I’m off to find the candling section.
Did you buy anything today?
I did buy a few things, just didn't pick up any new birds. I bought 2 handmade large bird cages, love them! Also, bought some homemade canned pickles, pickled okra and raspberry jam, they were all delicious!
In the past I have hatched and raised black copper means, and yes the dark eggs are hard to candle, lol. I'm not sure why you have 3 different colored babies if they all came from same colored birds.
Right now I have 3 separated cops with buff silkies, mixed bantams and barnyard mixes.
No one is laying any eggs yet. So just being patient, which is so hard, lol.

Hi fellow Okies. I live in Logan County, in between Edmond and Guthrie. We have a mixed flock of 14 currently ages varying between 5-10 weeks. Still waiting to see if we wound up with any roo’s that will have to find new homes.

Hello , I'm around Ok. I have four Easter Eggers and 22 Black Australorp that are 8 weeks 1 day old. Bought mine off line with a 90% all female pick. But lol I hope they messed up and gave me an Australorp Roo. Can't wait to see what color eggs my EE's gave me. I have two EE'r pictures in my Album. I did chickens for my son's 4h and FFA back around 2006. But they found them boring. I love my babies. I love how friendly the Australorp are. 2 EE's will let me hold them. And most of the Australorps. I have one pic of my coop. Will add more of my run. Hope to hear from you all. Go Sooners, Go Cowboys.
PS. Could not find to post a new post

Sorry this reply is so late, I've been on Vacation the last 3+ weeks. I got back yesterday and immediately checked on my girls (hens, roo, guinea, quailies) & found a 6 ft long snake with a belly full of chicks/chickens! I "twenty-gauged" him in two. I HATE snakes!
Thats the same kind of snake Ive been dealing with this year! I hate them!!.

Hi! I just went to a new swap today. It's on hwy 66 between Verdigris and Claremore at the new Tractor Supply. It was a really great swap, lots of different chicks and older chickens, ducks, geese and homemade goods like pillows, book covers, bird cages, bird feeders, wonderful canned goods too!! I loved this swap. They have a facebook page.....POULTRY FARM SWAP FOR CLAREMORE, CATOOSA AND TULSA OKLAHOMA AREAS......
They will have it the 1st Saturdays of every month.
I highly recommend this swap, it was good and very friendly okies.
Has anyone heard of any swap meets in the southern part of the state?
