    Just got an email from the lady I bought the eggs from and they were shipped out this morning so it looks like I will be getting them Wednesday morning and then setting late Wednesday night.

    I have 2 batches in the same bator due to hatch this Thursday. 18 in all. I am early on this thread too but I searched and didn't see another thread for these dates so I started a new one.

    I ordered another batch of silkie eggs that will probably arrive by Wednesday or Thursday. So after they have had time to settle I will start them then. WooHoo!!!! [​IMG]

    What do you all do with the chickens you don't want? Like the roosters? I can't kill them and eat them like my Grandmother did, rest her soul - and I have tried Craigslist without any luck. I have even tried to give them away without any takers.

    Keep posting every day on Craigslist. Do you have a feed store near you? Maybe ask them if you could put a sign up or if they know of anyone who would be willing to take them. You could also post in your states thread here on BYC and see if anyone would want them. I have also joined a few Florida groups on Facebook that are for poultry and people buy sell and trade all the time on there.
