    I set 2 dozen eggs in the bator last night, But every farm supply place in the area has chicks. I can't go near one of those places or I'll come home with one of every breed! It's only 21 days , right? i can wait, right? On the other hand I do need a picture for my avatar....yea and none of my eggs may hatch... and if they do hatch it would be nice for them to have older siblings to keep the bullies at bay...See!? Who am i kidding. I'll post pics as soon as I pick up my new chicks...(sigh)[​IMG]

    Just think the chicks you get today will be pratice for the chicks you hatch later. Just think how bad it would be to have some thing go wrong after youhatch (not that it will) but pratice make perfect. [​IMG]

    If what's in the incubator is the breed that you decided that you want,
    you should seriously consider waiting the three weeks to see what happens in the incubator, Buying from your "farm supply place" is a crap shoot. I suggest your making up your mind exactly how many and what breed(s) chickens you want and STICK TO IT. Face it, unless you're planning to sell eggs, in a few years your hens are going to be pets only, not pets that lay eggs for you.
