Sounds like you are doing pretty good for your age, I never tried to pick up more than a couple chics at a time, even in my prime. Of course now, I am not sure what I would do with them.

Ah, the aroma, chicks in the basement! Good luck, Kevin, with this year's flock. Nothing like fresh eggs. (well, fresh sweet corn, and fresh donuts...how could I forget) Ed

Down to 15.......One of my pullets turned out to be a rooster.He got big and mean.A fox came by the other night and took him out.He was sleeping on my buzz saw.He was real mean to the hens so he got kicked out of the coop.The other 2 got whacked by coons.I've shot close to 30 coons in a year now......think I have to many?????
Kevin ps ,,waiting for eggs,,,getting close!!!!
