    haha I can admit i have a prob, but i dont wanna stop [​IMG] HEHE!!!

    As for keeping or selling....it depends.

    The Ameraucanas and Wyandottes I'm keeping all, excess roos I'll probably try to rehome if I can find a reason to keep them around too without them causing problems lol then I'll keep them. edited to add the Seramas won't go in the mixed flock lol...they'll be in thier own pens [​IMG]

    The quails, hens keeping, males unless some nifty color, will go in the freezer sad to say.

    and the rest of the chickens will go into my mixed flock [​IMG] (excess roos......well theres various possibilities for them). [​IMG]

    Quote:I think i have both Hatch-a-holic syndrome and eggtitis....i'd say the difference is hatch-a-holic syndrome is the incubating of eggs where as eggtitis is the collection of eggs to be incubated [​IMG] [​IMG]


    oh and dont forget egg-on-the-brain-syndrome HAHAH
