    Well the large fowl are only 10 day old, I have blue, black, and splash. I am loving them hardcore. The bantams are silver laced, splash, and 1 buff brahma. I am loving them even more. The one splash rooster jumps onto my lap. I don't think I could sell him. He is such a sweetheart. My daughter will use him for her 4-H bird! The LF seem just as friendly, but of course time will tell.

    good Morning PA!!

    Gardenin: you've got to have at least a pip by now, no?....

    Missy: You deliver? How kind. You would be proud of me,I finally fired the gun. I'm such a baby -sited the coke can at least three times and pulled back again before finally pulling the trigger. Then walked away thinking, yup, I'm done with that. I can clean up some puppy pee for a while, how hard can it be? LGD is apparently the way to go for me.

    DH let chooks out this morning by accident, I hope there are some left when I get home.

    LOL, actually...Beaglady is kindly incubating my eggs, as I don't have an incubator. Rather than me do the drive all the way to her, she has a friend who comes to the Farmers Market here, I drop my eggs off with her, and she delivers them to Beaglady. Now I only have to go pick up whichever babies hatch that beaglady doesn't fall in love with! LOL

    Well no pips yet. I'm expecting them tomorrow I think. Hatching information can really be so conflicting that it had me all screwed up. Remember my day 18 lock down? First boo boo I made was that I was counting from day 1, not 24 hrs. after the eggs were put in. So.. my lockdown started a day early. 2nd blunder: I thought stop turning on day 18 meant ON DAY 18, not at the end of the day. Bottom line is I stopped turning, and locked down at the beginning of day 17. All informative sites should really be specific,I think! There is hope, my eggs are shaking, and I've found similar stories on line that had a happy ending. God's on my side anyhow, I WILL HAVE CHICKS!!![​IMG] I'll post pics asap.

    What would be a fair price for my 7 week old bantam mixes? I'm considering selling them but not sure what to ask. I have 4 & 4 but my DH wants to keep one of the pullets.

    depends on where in NEPA you are... there are several Tractor supply stores near me that sell it in 50lb bags... also a livestock auction is a good place to go.... it just depends on where you are, i am in nepa in the tunkhannock area, which is north of scranton/wilkes- barre area!

    also, zoo keeper, worth is in the eye of the beholder... if you want them to go to a good home selling them at a fair price is a good way to do that... what kind of mixes are they??
