    Hi everyone I hope your chicken adventures are going well! I have new girls on the way as my own have reached 2 years old and I was ready to have some different ones who laid a lot more. LOL! I have goats coming as well so between goat milk and chickens I should be baking my head off early spring of next year. Ha ha!

    So the new set are:

    Silver Laced Wyndotte
    Red Star
    Black Star
    Black Australorp
    New Hampshire Reds
    Dark Cornish
    Surprise mystery chick

    I was sad that I couldn't order any delawares as I do like them as a chicken overall (Deliah laid right through winter and is a big girl), but I think having chickens with a bit less white will be awesomesauce. I am keeping nine this time, though none of the Hampshire chicks nor the mystery chick if it is a rooster, will stay. They will be getting a new coop but not right now as I have plans to turn the old coop into a green house of sorts thus releasing my spare working room for storage of tools.

    So exciting! [​IMG]
