LOL. In January I started out ordering 5 female Barred Rock chicks.I got worried. What if something happens to a couple of them? Oh no! I better add two more female Barred Rocks, you know, "incase". Then I found out the hatchery gives away a free chick and in January you were able to pick the sex and the breed is a suprise! well, how could I pass that up! I picked a female . I got to looking at the online catalog in Rare breeds. I came across a Golden Cuckoo Maran I thought "My husband" would really like! well I added a female to "suprise him with" i mean who can resist chocolate color eggs right?? Then later, looking through the catalog again in Rare breeds I found another breed "my husband" would love but limit was 1 and they only had ONE female left! Well I had to act fast didn't i? I thought this Silver Penciled Rock was just Gorgeous! I don't want to disappoint "hubby" now do I? So I ordered 1 "for him".. SOME HOW my order of 5 turned into a order of 10! Now that's Chicken math at its FINEST! But...what do I tell hubby?? YIKES. Since we ordered in January;.....(and February,and March)hubby had forgotten how many we ordered and asked the other day while expanding the coop...it just FLEW out of my mouth at 8. um, yeah 8 so now I ONLY have two extra to a count for and not 5 extra!!! Whew dodged that bullet...but how to explain the two extra?? um, um,maybe the hatchery was extra generous and added two for warmth? YIKES! I don't know how I'm going to explain the extra "two" .I'm just greatful I was able to say 8 and help "refresh" um, his memory. Two might be a bit easier to explain then 5!!
