    So, here's the story...
    It all started with a friend from church giving me three little chicks. She wanted SLW and the smallest order she could get was six. She only had room for three. Would I take the other three?...

    Well, of course the chickens needed a HOME...

    Time passed. (three months) They grew so fast...

    They really needed some playmates. AND I found a thread on BYC about Imported English Orpingtons and I totally fell in love. So, I ordered some hatching eggs and bought an idiot-proof incubator...And 11 hatched.

    THEN I ordered four more, for a total of fifteen BBS English Orpingtons!

    Now, of course, THEY needed a new home...

    I loved my hatchery SLW so much that I added some breeder stock...

    This is what happens when you move a roost to the other side of the pen...
