    I ordered a hova 1588 with turner. Something I soooo dont need, but my dh mentioned I could get it for Christmas so I ordered it before he changes his mind. LOL
    Anyways, I bought form Home and Barn Basics and I'm so impatient. About how fast do they normally ship these out? I ordered on the 15th or 17th (need to look) and I'm wanting to order some eggs now.

    Wow... I so wish I lived in an area where I could buy a sportsman 1502 and 1500... it would set me back $1600 but it would make it easy to do some breeding programs.

    Her counting skills must be stellar: 19... 24... 30... what's the difference?

    Exactly!

    She stays away from "those smelly chickens"... but she does enjoy cooking with those eggs.

    Made us some awesome omlettes for breakfast yesterday.
