    My second hatch is coming right along. I have 5 new chicks and expect about 13 more by morning. This plus the 9 that are now 6 weeks old will replace my older layers that were sold to augment another guys flock.

    Ours are just starting to lay regularly again and 2 appear to be broody. We are looking to have 2-3 hatchings this year. We need some roosters for the canning jars and the freezer. ;)

    Baby chicks! :2thumb:

    We will let the ol game hen hatch a few :D ... It's not like we can stop her, she is very good at stealing a nest or two each year.:surrender:

    Total for second hatch was 11. That mean 20 new and 17 one year olds. I am really thinking about several groups of cornish x for meat now. A neighbor wants to swap me some bunnies for some birds. I will continue to branch our as much as possible.

    So what do you think about bunnies for chick? Good barter or not?
