They are being shipped. I don't know of many people in my area who have chickens. The few that I see around here seem to be mostly feed store chicks.
I retired my incubator, have diligently collected every egg from my devious broody hens, and was planning to avoid the hatch-a-long thread altogether this year, but here I am. Three of my banty hens were pitifully setting on empty nests and I felt so sorry for them I had to give in. I bought 6 baby chicks with the intention of putting 2 under each of them, but one hen decided all the chicks belonged to her, so that plan was foiled. I gave the second and third hens back a few random barnyard eggs to incubate and figured we were done. Then, while perusing the local Craigslist farm-and-garden posts, I discovered BBS Orpington eggs for sale literally around the corner from me! So I bought 6 of those and put them under the second hen while transferring all the barnyard eggs to the third hen. Somehow I'm up 18 chickens from a week ago and obsessing over ebay hatching egg auctions! This is dangerous territory..
I'd like to join this hatch along. I'm setting 18 serama eggs today!
Great! Any turkeys?
Awesome! Love it!
You have to let broody hens have eggs! It's the only proper thing to do. Welcome!
Welcome! Can't wait to see them!
