    I have some eggs from my sons one hen and roo that will be due to hatch strarting around Friday, Dec.12 My question is, Would anyone be interested in a Polish Roo chick if we get any? We can't keep the roo's. My son's roo and hen is now with in-laws cause a neighbor complained about his crowing and the board of health said we can't keep him here(we didn't want to separate them). We will be keeping the girls but unfortunately not the roo's. We live in Brockton, MA.

    There is a forum at the bottom of the page for buying and selling (and giving) chicks. I'm sure someone will snatch them up. I wish I could, but I'm too far away.

    The one that's being held is our roo Puff (not very masculine, I know). We thought he was the girl cause he was so much smaller than our hen. Now he's twice the size of Ommy. Surprise! The hen is Ommy (Omlet originally). They're our first chickens. My son wanted them and of course our family fell in love with them. We hatched them too. In the spring we want to get some Silkie hens. Ommy just started laying eggs but she doesn't sit on them. She just lays them wherever she wants and walks away. So far, we've got nine eggs. I've checked five of the eggs and we got four that are still going strong. The first one looks like it died but we're giving it a day or two more. It was supposed to hatch today. So hopefully, starting Friday and every two-three days after, we'll have some babies.

    I want to get some pretty different chicks to be pets with names and lay eggs and not end up in my frying pan. I wish you luck with your hatch.. [​IMG]
