    worse part is I didn't even get the car started before I told my wife they had 4 week old Ameraucana just the ones she was wanting! So we ended up getting 6. So I guess I have to turn in my man card! JK ! I was wanting to get some more ladies in February but now is just as good right! Dang chicken math!!

    Just FYI, feed stores don't sell true Ameraucana. Those are Easter Eggers.

    Tee hee cornfedhogedito, yep, now is as good a time as any [​IMG]

    Hubby does not let me go to the feed store alone ... I have never seen anyone stop what they are doing and jump in the car as fast as he does when I say "I am off to the Feed Store" [​IMG]

    Yep, chicken maths is a chronic condition that we all have [​IMG] I'm glad i live in Kenya and we do not have specific breeds available - otherwise i would be in heaps of trouble with my wife!

    Yes they are actually 3 to 4 weeks. The camera was 6 feet up and away from them! I will have to get some close ups of them. Just finished a procedure on one of my 20 month olds.

    Well, congrats on the new chicks![​IMG] Is it cold where you are at? Here in Ohio we are going through winter. So, it would be a huge process to keep those babies warm....unless I brought the box in the laundry room....[​IMG]
