    Hi wow your going to have a brooder or 2 full LOL,
    I set some of my 1st home bred Brahmas.

    17 total of buff, buff laced, silver laced, gold laced and 1 dark. I hope I have some fertile eggs, my hens have only been laying about 1-2 months. I can't wait to see some of your babies!

    That's amazing, guess you have some help with taking care of all those babies? Can't wait to see some pictures of them. You must have a lot of breeding stock or do you buy hatching eggs?

    LOL I just had a friend move in today who will be helping with my kids, cleaning the house, and whatever else LOL. I have a plant nursery plus all the chickens. I actually right now am still buying my hatching eggs and I plan on keeping part of each hatch to grow my flock. The problem is finding eggs cheap enough to be able to resell some to recoup some of my money going into all of this!
