Chick Season Continued...
Updated: Mar 30, 2020
Spring chick season is still in full swing!
We picked up these little fuzz-balls on Friday, March 20th from someone locally here in Rhode Island. Consider we're a small state not particularly known for our farming, there are a lot of folks selling hatching eggs and chicks with a nice mix of breeds available.
Two of these are Olive Eggers, which will obviously lay olive colored eggs. The other two are Silverudd/Silver Isbar, which also lay greenish/olive tinted eggs.
Of course, they'll lay green eggs IF they're pullets. These were bought straight-run, so we'll see what they grow up to be.
We also have a dozen eggs in the incubator. Our thinking was that with all the craziness going on right now and us stuck at home, we might as well try hatching out some chicks.
We haven't had the BEST luck with incubating of late (so we won't count our chickens before they hatch), but we're starting with 4 Olive Eggers, 4 Swedish Flower, and 4 Welsummer eggs.
