    galgo.....Thanks, I heard back from the folks I got the eggs from and yes, they are most likely blue swedish, they only mark them mixed because they do have a few runners also..now for some research,,,,I have 1 blue swedish and 1 peking....they are very different is size...my original plan was for ancona and silver appleyard...but I will work with what I got for now..

    Have Fun at the farm show, those crowds today would just make me very irritable.......not a people person to begin with...

    ....Please don't anyone get mad but I swear all those pennsylvania jokes need to have a clause put in,,,,,You must drink alcohol to live in pa..

    My farm show plans are in august,,,,,we always go up to ag progress days in penn state....outside with breathing room....we stay at the cabin all week, so there's room if any one wants to go up there and not make the drive all in one day... (warning...nothing fancy,,,there's electric, but limited running water, hot water is ran from the spring and heated on a gas stove,,,,but hey it is a cabin ))

    Breeds of chicks that hatched this week are...
    sussex
    maran
    ancona/orpington
    mixed from my own flock
    a few meat bird projects
    2 EE I think,, they were green eggs anyway..
    ...I have not gotten a final count yet, only lost 1 so far, didn't look good from the start though...
    Oh and the 7 quail..

    And all this time hubby was saying no ducks.....he has named them ducky and abby...can you tell what he watches on tv.....

    Hint for Sally the research quenn,, I hate doing research, what can you tell me about these 2 ducks.....and also galgo and sharon i think you both have ducks, if I stay with these 2 breeds since it is what I got will they meet the need of both eggs and meat..preferably broody also

    Everyone have fun at the fs! Guess ill go Wednesday, hopefully not as crowded (see others comments).
    I'm considering a new chop. Has anyone made an a frame with 8 foot sides? Thinking minimal use of materials for amount of floor space, but still high enough to work in. I'm thinking perhaps 8x16 so I can section it off. Guess I need to do some drawings to figure it out.

    Went to a hockey game last night. $8 to park on top of price for tickets. $10 for farm show almost seems a bargain!
