7 chicken less on the farm

I took a hard decision but in the end, it was the only thing to do.
Today I sold my 7 Brahma hens and only the 2 Brahma roosters are left and I hope, I'll find some buyers for them as well.
So many hens, so many roosters, it was too much.

I will keep the small hens and roosters and will separate them by breed.
That will also minimize all the new coming chicken.
I have sold a lot in the last weeks, still some left to sell and still some eggs in the breeding machine to hatch.

Not really sure about it now, but maybe I'm going to sell all roosters next year.
Just keeping the hens for some breakfast eggs or eggs to sell. But this decision can wait, no hurry with it :-)

This way I will save for sure a lot of money and it also means less work for me to do.
Still trying to find some buyers for my mares, I don't care about the money I could get, but a good place for them.
So if the right person will show up I'm open for a discussion about the price.

Siblings

Today I got 2 cute hatchlings, one in yellow and the other with yellow and black.
The other two I kept from all hatchlings in the last weeks were outside in the garden, while the other two had to stay inside.
But it's so warm, I think they can stay in the garden as well tomorrow.

Now I took the older ones in and the biggest one decided, to visit the small ones :-)



Sad thing is, I have to sell the new ones and every following hatchling, cause I already have more than enough hens and roosters.

An invisible ostrich maybe?

Every day I go to the chicken coop to take out the eggs.
Some of my hens decided to sit on them and maybe, if we're lucky, some chicken will hatch.
And I put all other eggs in the breeding machine and this way I got already over 40 chicken :-)

Yesterday I went to the coop to collect the eggs and I was stunned!


Look closely at this one huge egg!
I found big eggs, of course, my Brahma hens and roosters are big, very big. But never before I found an egg this big.
Like all other eggs, I wrote the date on, so I know, when the time is there for the chicken to hatch.
I always wait some more days, before I take an egg out, just in case, it could be a late hatchling.

Please cross your fingers with me, that there will be a hatchling from this big egg.
I'm so exited to see, how it will look like :-)
