I already have 20 gorgeous 8-week old chicks, 6 roos and 14 hens (all bought straight run). I have ee's, sex-links, blrw's, bantam cochins, silkies and a rir. You would think that would be enough for a 1/3 acre subdivision lot, right? RIGHT?!? DH and I started talking about moving our roo's up to our land (5 acres a few miles away from our house) since we have tons of chain link panels, goat fencing, etc. Then the wheels started turning... If we put the roos up there why not our LF hens? and Wouldn't it be nice to have some dark brown egg layers? So after a lengthy roadtrip yesterday I came home with: 3 welsummers, 2 marans, 2 australorps, and two white frizzle cochins. The lady I bought them from is on byc occassionally but I can't rememer her username. She has an amazing 5-acre farm with goats, chickens, turkey, guineas, pigs and I think a cow or two. Also tons of veggie and fruit plants/trees. It was amazing for me to see what I could eventually do with my land. Anyway, so we have gone from 20 to 29 chicks now and I want to say that's it but this chicken addiction is baaaaad!
