I swore!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I swore That I wouldn't have more than 10 chickens at a time...I swore I would not buy them under 20 weeks of age... I swore I would never raise baby day old chicks... Today I ordered 15 more day old chicks to add to my 9. And I am so excited!!! Moral of the story...never say you will never do something when it comes to chickens, cause ya probably will!! big_smile.png

WOW. I haven't ever owned more than 14. I've never seen that many chickens in on place other that the feed store either.
