    I just wanted to share that I'm adding three more chicks to my brood. A Blue and Lavender Orpington and a Partridge Cochin. They will arrive in June and couldn't be more excited !!!! I never thought I would love chicken this much!

    You might be interested in serama bantams. This is Wart; a truly wonderful pet.

    I just ordered 3 more also arriving in late June! I ordered them because I thought I was losing one of my girls who thankfully recovered. I have time to cancel, but jeez I want those little chicks!!! I really don't need more chickens! Can 3 more really hurt? Can you tell I am going to have a hard time canceling that order? [​IMG]

    Oh and I am getting a Lavender Orpington as well. I got one a couple years ago, but lost her at 15 weeks. Still the hardest loss I've had with my chickens. I already have a cochin, white. She is beautiful! Be prepared for the broodiness, otherwise she is a good layer.
