    I have a Black Giant chick, and mystery chicks that I dont know what kind they are (chick pictures in the Raising Chicks thread), incubating Easter egger eggs, Silkie eggs, Show girl eggs, Australorp eggs...and coturnix quail eggs...

    they will be for eggs unless they are roos...and for pets (silkie/show girls)

    Quail will be for both.

    start collecting eggs for Vamp-a-Billy...she is my online hatch buddy)

    And I still currently am breeding/showing my bantam barred rocks but we're going to stop breeding them and are selling 3 of our hens and just keeping our best pullet and our rooster for showing.

    I have barred rocks, ameracaunas, bantam cochins, RIR's, Light Bramas, and 1 red star. I just ordered a bunch of blue, blue mix & silver americauna eggs! I decided I want mostly blue eggs and I really like the variety of color in the ameracaunas. I never hatched before, which is why I am back on the board after a year or so. I am hoping to have all my eggs by saturday, and ready for the bator on monday!
