So Spring is trying to bust out all over. It's beginning to affect even those still snow bound.

Which leads to the critical question:

How many of you have recently come home with chicks that you had not planned on coming home with?!

Now don't try to deny it or rationalize it away. We ALL know you do it!

So how many and what breeds/varieties did you bring home?

You DO have a brooder set up already, right?

Okay, I'll go first. I have two orders coming through the mail. The first one arrives tomorrow. Yesterday, I just "happened" to call my local feed store to ask when they would be receiving their chicks, and found out that they had just arrived 5 minutes before I called. It was a sign. So . . . went in and came home with 2 BO, 2 Americaunas, and 1 RIR.

After 19 years? I'm immune, unless it's a specific breed I'm interested in. No chicks for me this year.

I'm pretty much immune to all advertising anyway. I don't buy into the "sucker syndrome".

Not nearly as fun as not planning, but what the heck! I am ordering fuzzies to be here on May 6/7...

Although, I had my eyes on a few Quail and I DIDN'T plan on those... It isn' tdefinite yet but I'm hoping that I can convince Dad!

I haven't bought any chicks, but my incubator is LOADED with Call duck eggs right now that I just HAD to buy because my girls hadn't started laying yet.

Not me! I just was at TSC and came home empty handed. Of course they had no breeds that interested me.

If EE bantams had been there, who knows what might have happened?
