    When you figure it all out, you can make an infomercial on the secrets of hatching wealth and sell MILLIONS of copies of your new book.

    You will be rich, and retire to a life of leisure on a chicken ranch.

    I am sure of it.

    [​IMG] Just googled it, lolol.

    The place I got my Chickpea from is amazing. It's a family run hatchery that has been in business on the island for like 50 years or something, and they are so nice everytime I go in! Maybe it's cause they get to play with chicks all the time [​IMG]

    Yeah, one may think twice about naming a farm Chicken Ranch. You could wind up with the wrong clientel.

    I have a similar dream but alas, the business plan does NOT look good. Fun thought though.

    Chicks, maybe, though... If I did enough volume so my heart didn't latch onto any particular ones... Within a week.

    I've just spent 20 minutes in the bathroom nursery admiring the 3 latest hatchlings. Then another 5 minutes in the guest bedroom where i've got all the incubators set up, urging one little chick to push harder and zip its pipped egg. Its little beak is poking out.
