    I picked up my chicks from the feed store where i ordered them. My dh decided that 4 was all we needed. Well I went to pick them up myself, thats was his first mistake, I decided that we needed 7. Lets see if he even notices when he gets hme from work .
    I can't help it there just so cute.

    I can tell you from experience, as many others can as well....build a bigger coop NOW. Before you NEED it. I started with " 6 or 7 just for eggs" I now have 8 PENS and coops! Ohhh, the addiction...i just LOVE it!
