The new laying flock is started!

Today we put the eggs into the incubators for the next winter flock.  We decided to hatch 2 flocks a year,  one in early winter and one early summer.  That should be best chance for a sturdy winter laying flock and a consistent summer laying flock.

So far there are about 140 eggs in.  Another 140 to come.  Our target is 300 eggs hatched at once to end up with about 100 laying hens in a flock.
