    Please tell me I do not need to get my buff girl a man. Please tell me I do not need to sell my other chickens and convert to Brahmas. Please tell me I will get nowhere. Please tell me that because I must have somewhere to seperate them I do not need another coop. And I do not need a bator. And I do not need to spend money on show birds....please?

    You realize you've come to the wrong place for that kind of help

    We are enablers are us for crying out loud. There is no such thing as too much, too many. Whatever it takes more, more, more....

    In all seriousness do you think you could part with your birds to specialize in one breed...... probably not, so you would need to either convert the present coop or build another.

    And a bator is an educating experience filled with all the emotions of the

    And what would be the point in owning SQ birds without being able to hatch some of your own to sell or add to your breeding stock... seeeeeeeeee how it all works together.

    We have brahmas, but forgive, I guess I'm stupid for I don't understand what you are asking or want to know

    Storm, if you plan to have the Brahma roo with other, smaller, breeds, you may want to rethink that one. If he will only be with Brahmas or other very large breeds, that should be fine, but a huge rooster like a Brahma can hurt a small hen. I've known it to happen. I liked the sexing mistake Brahma boy I had. He was sweeter than the girls. I'm sure that didnt help, LOL.

    And just think of all the money you can make selling pure bred eggs to all us greedy hatchers that have no self control whatsoever!! [​IMG]

    You needn't sell your other chickens, you can keep them all in the new coop you are going to buy.

    You will become successful, rich, and more beautiful by doing this thing.



    What the heck is money good for except for buying more chickens, coops, and incubators?? [​IMG]

    Hope that helped. [​IMG]
