Well heck I made it through Chick Days at my local stores but out of the blue today I went and ordered five , day-old babies, online. This may not sound like much but I've already got 27 hens and I don't need anymore daggum chickens! I'm going to blame it on a broody that refuses to be broken. Some babies will give her something to do instead of hogging a nest box and poking holes in eggs as she moves them around. Watch! By the time the chicks arrive, she'll probably decide she's sat long enough! Oh my goodness, I hope my husband doesn't notice the new peeps .
