Lol, none of my grown up girls will eat mealworm. (Of course, I found that out after I bought a big bag of dried and started raising live ones in my kitchen cupboard--unbeknownst to DH.)
We are only zoned for 4 hens but I am a master at chicken math. We started with 6--Sweet Pea had to be re-homed since he was a boy and two days ago we lost Trillium when she hopped over the fence. I got three from Dennis to make up for the one I lost. (Two Pennsylvania Blacks and a Welsummer, who I hope will assuage my desire for something Partridgey Plumaged.)
Of course I still am looking for a SLW, a Sussex and a couple or Orpingtons to make my quota.
Denis is wonderful. He nearly got me to buy a turkey and a Reece legbar. But I think I will hold out for one of his lavender Ameraucanas since I do need some of that color in my back yard!
If you read this Denis --is it ok if I post a picture or video of you with that darling Reece baby? Tilly--did you get one of each of his?
