Little chicks are addictive, then reality sets in - full grown chickens.

Hey Kathy,

Keep a look out for a medium size box on your porch. I have two roosters we'll be sending your way. btw, don't tell Diane.

no thanks GSF.  i think my march batch has a rooster.  i catch him/her every day and haul it around with me.  if it's mean, it goes. 

on the + side, i have found that selling fertilized eggs is more profitable than selling the same eggs for eating.  go figure......

A friend of mine had a duck that he couldn't keep off of the eggs. So he ask me for a dozen fertilized eggs and wal-la, now he has a bunch of baby chickens following a duck around. Now that's what you call a Kodak moment!

I haven't spoken to him in a while, I wonder if the mama duck tried to get them to go in the pond?
