    I think I am nuts....................

    I just ordered 48+ Large Fowl Cochin eggs Black, Blue, Splash. My Black Australorp order is 18+. The Java, and Coronation Sussex are both going to be 12+ each. That is going to be a lot of peepers, hopefully in my brooders!

    I hope the Cochins are going to continue to be really popular. The Black Australorps are going to be for my egg flock. They are gorgeous. The hens are just a wonderful beetle green, they lay really well, don't mind the cold, keep laying in winter. I am going to be honest, I am getting 1-2 eggs a day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Most of my ladies are to young to lay. I think I sold to many of my older birds to soon to keep up with my egg demand. I don't really have a standard chicken coop. I have a 12 x 72 foot area, that can be divided into 6, another 12 x 48 foot area undivided, and 2 12 x 12 foot horse stalls, and one outside coop that I store my bike in. I will list off what I have:

    2 female geese, 1 Toulouse and a Buff American
    1 pair of Royal Palm Turkeys

    5 LF Cochings 1 Blue Rooster, 2 Blue hens, and 3 Black hens I have one black, and one blue hen 4sale
    1 pair of Silver Laced Bantam Cochins
    5 Mottled Bantam Cochin chicks
    1 Black Naked Neck hen aka Elviria
    2 Blue Andalusian hens
    3 English Orpingtons 1 Blue rooster, 1 Blue hen, and 1 black hen
    3 Silver Laced Wyandottes 1 rooster, 2 hens
    2 Sumatra 1 Splash, and 1 Blue
    1 mix Blue Andalusian x Silver Laced Wyandotte hen
    then I have an undetermined amount of Ameraucana

    I know I have 18 5 week olds, 11 10 week olds
    1 Splash hen, 2 Splash roosters
    1 Blue Rooster, 4 Black Roosters (will go down to 2, after some more growing to determine which ones)
    as for blue and black hens, lets say I have a lot at least 20 maybe 40???? LOL I am really not sure!

    I may have missed some, it took me 20 minutes to write this post????????????

    They do. I think RoPo took the only ones that didn't. I was so disappointed!! I had hoped they were going to be a good foundation for me. :( Oh well, these things happen, right? I do have a nice little quad of partridge coming after the 1st.
