    Hello Sarah,

    I really like this thread!
    To start it off, I got some pictures today!

    Here is my BO hen named Sophia!
    She was my very first chicken of my own.

    She pecks my Dad's hand,
    she was my friend from the start!

    She turned 6 yrs the day before Mothers day!

    Thank you!

    I have had that problem too! I don't like when it does that either!

    I was going to respond before when I signed on, but I had to do a email confirmation. So I couldn't do anything, it's back though! :ya

    I'm new to chickens I got the first ones last Friday and already I can see chicken math starting lol. I started off with 3 silkies and 3 Easter eggers. A few days ago I decided I wanted more future egg colour variety for the toddlers to collect in the fall.. soooo I kept one silkie and one easter egger and sold the other 4, so I could get 4 more (1 of 4 different breeds) in stead yesterday I picked up 3 black copper marans, and tomorrow some cream crested Legbars are due to hatch and I'm first on the list for 2 females.. sooo that puts me up to 7 (already one more than the 6 original, which was one more than the 5 my other half approved lol) aaaand I'm still trying to hunt down the elusive salmon Faverolles, and the basically non existent (that I can tell) Langshan! My issue is I need it to be local since no one will ship less than 25 chicks and I only want two of each.. maybe next year if I'm lucky enough to have some broody hens I'll order eggs and they can hatch them for me LOL anyways that would put my total chicks up to 11 and I can see it getting more out of control as time goes by, I want all the breeds :lol:

    I have 20 2 week old Salmon Faverolles chicks, 3-4 appear to be cockerels and the rest pullets. Where are you located? Maybe I can get some to you

    I'm in Canada :( This fact never made me sad until I realized I have to cross the boarder to pick up chicks in the US that they cant be mailed straight here
