    I did email them, haven't heard anything yet. I will have my bator open, and can borrow the egg turner from Kristi. I have to wait another few weeks to set any Jaerhon eggs, as I have a silkie rooster who is going one way or another.. dinner OR the humane society...And I had to chuck my half silkie roo into that pen as I had to move one of my serama roos in to my mixed bantam pen, he and my other serama roo decided to start fighting.
    Anyway.. I can pick up a dozen and set them if anyone is interested. I am NOT interested in keeping any. I have my Marans, Jaerhons, bantams, and Seramas.. as well as the other assorted large breed hens I have.

    If you get a response Carol, I would be greatly interested in a dozen eggs, after you of course. I e-mailed too, so I guess we wait & see. [​IMG] My bator is currently empty too, but I can hear it calling................. [​IMG]

    CC,
    I just emailed him, he responded to me, I put in an order for a dozen or so eggs for hatching. I will tell him to that he should expect one from you too! If I or TO can get them, do you want to meet? Let me know, he only has about "3-6 hens"... so is it 3 or 6 ... LOL I kinda wonder.

    I found the answer to the garlic question in a good book by Barbara Damrosch. The name of the book is The Garden Primer. 1988 pg 260..'"....It is planted in early spring in the north, fall or winter elsewhere.......sometimes garlic is overwintered in the north....'"


    Yeay It is raining. We need it!!!! Sounds like a good soaker too.
