    Hey all. I just found the Easter hatch a long posts. I've got 30 viable eggs set right now for the Valentines hatch. I wonder if I can talk my husband into a second batch. [​IMG][​IMG]

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] ok. I'll try. Who knows. Maybe most of these will be boys and I'll HAVE to do another to reach our desired hen amount. We want about 30 hens... Got 16 but 6 of them are almost 3... About time to cull those older girls. Sad I know but these are working ladies. They will start paying for their keep or supplying my with food in the freezer.

    A little extra info on my Black Am eggs - They are some of her first eggs. She just started laying about 10 days ago. I am sure they will lighten with age and as the eggs get bigger, but I am enjoying that color while they last. My Black Ams originally came from @dak here on BYC. I haven't seen her on in quite a while. I believe these Black Ams are from a black only line - never any blue or splash or other color - which I have read is renowned for their egg color. So, if some of you want pretty blue eggs like mine, look for a breeder with a black only line. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I'll probably never find out who it is, but one of my 3 Andalusian pullets laid her first egg today! [​IMG] My first white egg from a breed that is supposed to lay white eggs.
