Re: ****Winter**** Chicken Moma chat thread. Join in the chat!

How fun! Wouldn't you know just as soon as dh and I said we didn't want to hatch out chicks we both felt sad and decided we needed to. But we're just going to hatch them out or meat. So we got online and found a cheap rooster (amaracuna he happens to be for $2-and that's a dual breed so it works) and we'll go get him this afternoon. We'll keep him a month or so just to get enough eggs for the incubator and then we'll either eat him or sell him again. Now I kind of wish we hadn't eaten our Rohde island red rooster last month. We like hatching out chicks in our classrooms, and having them for our son to watch too. But we just have such awful luck getting girls that I hate counting on them. When we go to pick him up we're going to go to the feed store and see what chicks they have and maybe pick some up.
