I hear the first chirps coming from incubator, should hatch tomorrow. Black sex links(Rhode island red roo and barred rock hens). Cockerels go in a grow out tractor that I still need to build from pallets and scrap wood, lumber cost being what it is.

Scuba need to get you some Russian Orloffs they eat fire ants.

I order chicks through our local feed store and they have stopped taking orders because they had several orders arrive with all the chicks dead. They blame the postal service,not the hatcheries, as the chicks are arriving late. I hope they get it figured out. We don't have any hatcheries in our area and I need meat birds.

We have Freedom Rangers and a few Australorp pullets that should arrive next week. Earliest start for us, but we want to butcher the meat birds early this year. They'll definitely be indoors for a while. +9F this morning, 4" new snow and it's still coming down. A cruel April Fool's joke!

My wife got 22 cornish cross at the local feed store. They called and asked if she wanted them when they discounted them. They had not sold and were several weeks old. Fully feathered and $1.50 each. It had been cold so they just went out into the tractor today.

We have had 2 batches for year ordered to be delivered later when its warmer this season but could not pass that deal up. Saved a lot of money on feed.

If they are several weeks old they should be ready to butcher. Did you mean days? Either way a heck of a deal.

Picked up some Cackle over run last night for a buck a chick. Can't beat that......most splash laced red wyandottes, barred rock pullets, black copper maran pullets and a few silver phoenix.

Have some week old game fowl (10) and another 10 OEG White banties here in the house.

124 duck eggs in incubator and 96 Kelso, Hatch, Grey, Roundhead eggs in the incubator - these are what I really am excited about. Not sure what the other 10 hatched off game chicks are but all came from same guy. I have always wanted some game chickens and should have an excellent start. Talked to a guy last night with 200 roosters tied out.
