    i let shipped eggs sit, but i've put my own eggs straight into the bator. Temps and humidity, well, that's what counts most! Did you say what you're hatching and I missed it?

    Welcome Bower!

    I was going to show there, but what got me was the temperature change, I thought if they were INSIDE the farm complex for 9-10 days (coop in on Friday, pick up following Sunday) and then back outside when they got home that they would all molt. The live vaccine required was a bit of a put off as well.

    They feed and water your birds for you.

    Delmarva is looking like a pretty big local show. It's coming up in March and I am IN!!

    You love all the attention, Ray.


    I think alot of people stopped showing several years back when someone brought in sick birds and almost everyone had losses as a result of them not catching it before the show. I know they're much stricter now, but it's one of those once burned, twice shy things.


    My poor birds would go insane...a week in a cage???


    I don't blame you!


    Awesome! Thanks!


    The estrogen doesn't even begin to balance ya'lls.....


    Cool...you going to the Maryland Small Flock Seminar?


    Cause I have an appointment to pick out my wedding dress today.

    The people who show have this process they go thru to bring home the chickens from the FS had a lady from my area tell me she would share the info with me if I ever wanted to show there but man I don't know if I could leave my chickens with all those crazy people. Saw too many people be arrogant and nasty to birds and I love my birds too much :(

    What is a good breed to start with in this part of the US? I have a trio of bantams, that I got from an auction I am calling my "practice chickens". Trying to decide what breed to start a flock with. Thank You

    That depends on what you are wanting from your birds. Are you looking for meaties, eggs, good foragers, docile pet, show birds?

    Insomnia. For years....

    Tell me more!!!!

    oh, and I wanted to say, if anyone else is interested in those pretty blue eggs (white LF Ameraucana) PM me and I will put you in touch with her. She ships chicks and eggs and is over by Erie.
