Picked them up yesterday at the feed store, gotta love spontaneous animal purchases! Actually, I've been researching raising chickens for a few months and I'm in the process of building a coop out of recycled wood and tin from the neighbors tore down carport. I think i'm gonna inclose two sides of it and leave two sides framed out chicken wire for ventilation, right now they are staying in a dog pen and free ranging when i get home. My bluetick already picked one up in her mouth but didnt hurt it. Pickles the pitbull might not be so gentle.

guessing they ain't blue on the inside!....so you just have to use them for easter

edit: fwiw roosters can get REALLY nasty with kids, by daughter was attacked when she was about 4 or 5 and still has a scar over her eyebrow....That was the end of the road for mr rooster......

how can you tell if the eggs been fertilized or not? candling? i am green at this chicken farming but backyardchickens.com, thinkcooper and DLMKA have been very helpful. I dont want a rooster around the kids, thats why if they end up being roosters they're getting a beercan up the keester and goin on the grill:thumbsup:
