    I have two coops that have specific breeds separated from my main layers flock. In one coop I have 1 Columbian Wyandott roo and 2 hens. In the other coop I have 1 black Silkie Roo and 2 hens, silver and gold. In that same coop is one black show girl as well... not sure what to do with her :)

    I thought that I would breed these chickens, but the idea of vaccinating them has me a bit timid. Now, I'm curious about selling the eggs as "hatching eggs". Is this difficult, scary or more involved than I might be expecting? I'm looking for a little guidance before I just give up and collect the eggs like all the others.

    As for now, I'm not getting eggs from any of these hens except one Silkie... cute little eggs.

    Thanks!
