    I have peeping not pipping yet [​IMG]. I couldn't remember if tomorrow or Fri was 21 so was a little surprised to hear it.

    I only know that 3 are good some are too dark to see through. Mutts of course [​IMG]

    I have two boxes of 8 eggs being shipped from eggbid, show girls and exchequer leghorns, so when the peeping ones hatch, clean up and put in more eggs, I've not hatched in a couple years this is very egg citing.

    Well hello neighbor!!!! Silly question, what is CSA?

    I'm a relative newbie with chickens, I started w/ guineas last year and have six crazy birds. I just hatched 3 silkies and am patiently waiting for six more, have some frizzles waiting to hatch and have an order from Ideal coming.

    So I'm going from guineas to craziness in one year. No panicking though I'm sharing w/ friends.

    Where in Shrewsbury?

    PM me if you prefer.

    Well congrats on your new baby. I'm jealous. Keep your fingers crossed for me on my six eggs waiting to hatch. Today is day 21 and nothing....
    However, I have a good feeling about tomorrow.

    I never heard of that type of farm but honestly I don't know how I would have. I know where Heberts is. Glad you joined the forum. Its addicting so be forewarned.

    There's a group on here that is puttin together a swap meet on June 29th in NH if your interested. Just check that index and you'll see the stream of conversation.
