(thanks you too so much!!) and then I got some very cute chocolate orp chicks from Allison (my third THANKS so much!!!). and well I am also coming home with 21 roos packed on ice, close to 6 dozen eggs (still not quite sure how that happened: thanks Cheryl, Stacey, and Sheri), a flock of buff and gold laced brahmas, a lav orp, and 2 silkies from Stacey at Thistledown. let's just say that every dollar that I have made to pay for my feed this month has been spent and then some! But, i do have some beautiful birds and will have a lot of chickies in a few weeks!! And I think, hope, and pray that no more chickens will make it onto my prooperty in the next 6 months that I havent hatched from my own eggs. This was an eventful weekend. The only sad thing was not getting a truckload of $14/bag feed from Echo Valley Feed. Just couldn't squeeze it in.
Thanks Again to Molly for the hours of chicken chat and being so generous!! Look forward to getting you some great hatching eggs soon and doing my best to feed your collection. :-) (BTW, I was so close to trying to come and pick up those brooders but just couldn't swing it!)
Thanks Sheri for always hooking me up with more silkie and sizzle eggs than I know what to do with.
Thanks Cheryl for meeting up with me and though I was said to see that beautiful blue partridge brahma pullet go, I know you will do great things with her! And i'm excited about my MF leghon and Choc Orp projects that you were able to help me out with.
Allison, those chicks look great. My kids were so happy to see them and their brown little legs. I think they will get a lot of kid attention at my place. Thanks for taking them to Cheryl!
Stacey, thanks for letting me wipe you out of brahmas on behalf of me and Mike and for my orp girl and cute little slikies, the kids second favorite. And thanks to your son for chasing them all over the property with me to catch them!
Great little norcal chicken community. Goodbye sacramento area (the land of chicken plenty), it's back to redding and the land of chicken lacking... although amy beth, mike, and I are doing our bit to change that!!
