    no I wish for them to just hatch, but there little stinkers! [​IMG]

    They are probably gonna wait till I am at work and then hatch. hahha. They are chirping and rocking around though.

    What is really neat is I am gonna keep all of these orphs and not sell one. [​IMG] I want hens and I want BIG eggs!

    ok well I better stop talking and not count my chickens before they hatch.[​IMG]

    ohhhh the waiting game.....

    Mine are Rhode Island Reds. They mature so quickly and start laying faster than most breeds.
