LOL 😅 I can totally see that Happening ^^
I started off thinking I wanted Barred rocks, EE Welsumer, and RIR, then Somehow I saw this ad for a beautiful little 5 month old sebright roo.. and I ended up with him and two buff orps, then I saw an ad for Dominique pullets, and thought OMG they are soo cute! Off I went to Reno to pick them up(was supposed to get just 1). Saw them and had to have two, and somehow ended up with this 2 week old silkie Mutt chick in my hand, and my daughters talked me into getting the chick(fingers crossed its a pullet
) and then I realized after all the chickens I got, None of them where what I origionally planned. I really wanted a colorful egg basket, so I ran down to the shop (Kruses) and prayed they had an ameraucana or two left... they had One left, someone came just an hour before me and grabbed the second to last! So I took her home so she could sister up with our other chick, so when they are turned out into the coop with the other older chickens, they will at least have eachother during the initiation process of chickenhood!
I think maybe early next year we will look into getting some more bantams, our Roo is a bantam, and silkie mix is a bantam, the rest are standards, but I want chocolate brown eggs and green eggs too... Bantam Welsumer and Bantam EE here I come!
I may have gone slightly off the deep end, as you can tell. Bwahahaha
