    I got the stink bugs too. Yes I am going to LV Livestock auction. I am just going to look :) I have Bantam Cochins in my bator. 24 eggs, I ordered from a fellow BYCer. I got them for my daughter to use for her 4-H project. Keep the best roo!!! the rest can goooooooooooooooo! I finally hatched out some b/b/s Marans! I tried ordering eggs from 3 people! The second set I even picked up. Out of all the eggs I have bought I got 4 chicks out of 40 eggs. Hatching Ameraucanas like crazy!!!! I can't wait until they grow up, so I can cull!!!

    Yes I have been there. That is where I sell my roosters, if I can't craigslist them. Just try it out. Even if you don't buy anything they have a reasonably priced food stand. It has french fries that taste like the farm shows!!!!

    Dang!!!! Ah well...I'm hoping something pans out. If nothing else, I've got a short amount of time I can keep them. Plus, I'll take them to the Lucasville, OH show and see if I can sell any.

    Also, does ANYONE do poultry testing as of right now? I need to have some PT/AI testing done for my birds so I can show them at the end of May?

    So far, the stinkbugs don't seem as bad this year. Last year, they kept crawling out of the cracks in the window frames. Squick!

    Heatherscooby,

    I got some b/b/s Marans too. Out of the first dozen, I got 5. The second dozen has another 2 weeks to go. That stinks (like a stinkbug, lol) that you didn't have better results.

    I seen a few stinkbugs here. I don't even like the way they look. Now is the time the big black ants like to invade our house. I hope they will not get into my coop. This is the first time I have had a coop and chickens.

    I wonder if they are hard to hatch. I must check into this.

    Re: stinkbugs
    Put some dish detergent in a spray bottle full of water, spray the stink bug and they die almost immediately.
