    You are not alone! Sounds so much like me. I guess we all start out small, then chicken math takes over!


    Yep, yep!

    My 5 roosters, and 3 drakes were gifted to me too!

    Exactly! [​IMG]


    And I lost my big egg quote [​IMG] I get big ones like that occasionally. I know if I'm short an egg one day, I'm going to get a big one the next day!

    Check out this duck egg (and she didn't skip a day!)

    As many chickens as everyone in the group has..........have you noticed they like to hang with the same color as they are? I just heard this from the feed store this year and began watching them...........my BS hangs with my BO both buff........and the rest follow suit........how odd!!!!!!!!! My thoughts are they recognize the throw back strain from the bloodlines? Oh well ....here's the most unusual pair I've seen. My daughter had a rescue baby, the goat didn't hang with the goat the doe......guess who he was in love with..............[​IMG][​IMG]

    Ever hear "birds of a feather flock together"?

    I slipped a new red sex link hen in with my 150 hens and they didn't notice. Put one Columbain patterned in and she had to run for her life.
