    After a less than fabulous turn out from Belt hatchery (Excellent birds, terrible C.S), I ordered from Ideal the last of my fledgling flock. I have 10/3 Danish Brown Leghorns on thier way. Yes I am aware of the rooster issue, (2 australorps/3 DBL) but I want to be able to pick the best one of the boys.. I have no problem with having sunday dinner [​IMG] I am excited.

    That brings me to:

    13 DB Leghorns
    6 Light Bramas
    10 Australorps
    6 Black Jersey Giants (I think, wasn't charged for them)
    2 Partridge Cochins (one died)
    3 Silkies, white
    4 White Crested Black Polish
    16 eggs in the incubator from onthespot, 3 days down, 18 to go!

    I am glad I have a lot of room!! They have to stay cooped, because natural predators out here are C R A Z Y
