17 from first batches thriveing, 4 littles, and 24 in the bator. No idea what the hatch rate will be. Hope it's a good one. 2 blues! Here is a pic of the new blue. Sleepy so I just got a super fast pic. And the setup with the 2 big bins and the little for transitioning. The pine chips are 100% better than the oak mulch! Also, a pic of Daysey May playing chicken.

Yes I woukd. We are killing our roosters today so no more here. They are just eating to much and not doing anything but causing trouble and being noisy.

Fodie, sounds like my first batch. I sold 7 and we ate 3 a little while back. Would you eat them? Ours were so mouth watering. Just less meat. The bantam 2, they were tough in the legs. Standard size, !!!!

Re: November Chicken Chat Thread~~~Join in!~~~

sounds like your rooster throws blue Sarah! Cool. How many chicks do you have now?
Becky just lmk when. I'll need some help with the shipping b/c they'll have to go priority box but I'd be glad to send you straight ee or mixes if you want. Almost lost our speckled sussex norah to a hawk this am. It swooped down just a few feet from me. I was screaming and shooting it with the garden hose. It made one last swipe at her (there were a few running that it was going after) and bit a little chunk of her comb out but left her. I thought for sure she was a goner. Glad I was at least out there to defend her. Just a matter of time in all reality since I do free range them. I don't have the heart to lock them up all day though. I hate this part of chicken keeping. This hasn't been a good weekend. I mentioned once before dh was going deer hunting. He went out again friday and actually did get a buck on Sat morning. He was driving out with it and got stopped by a ranger and when the guy asked to see it he told dh it was an illegal harvest. It was literally a on the fence kill, about 1/8 in short on the hook and the guy wouldn't give it to him. He at least didn't ticket him but all that work and $$ we spent for nothing. What a disappointment. Dh was so excited and eager to get the meat home and properly stored that he didn't get a pic or anything. Just lots of bloody clothing to show for it and a musky jeep. I hate CA sometimes.

We just got rid of our roosters today, so let me get squared around. Need to see what goes on with the girls. Have any of you ever considered debeaking? We are at our wits end

It's not for me Becky, I have strong feelings against it. Can you order some of those blinders I linked you to? They have been the saving grace in my flock. I had a few bullies picking my brahma bloody.
