    1) Buy some hatching eggs
    2) Give a broody a dozen fertile eggs to sit on
    3) Go to the feed stores in Spring and follow the peeping sounds

    What's a "recovering" chicken addict? I don't understand the juxtaposition of those words. Could you explain this more fully to me????

    I've never met anyone who "recovered". If you tried to have a CA meeting someone would bound to bring some eggs, then someone else would say they had some extra chicks and it would just become yet another poultry swap meet.

    I WOULD not bring eggs to a CA meeting. But, I might bring chicks cuz they aint really chickens yet. [​IMG]
