Evenin', y'all! Two new chicken wranglers here in western Tennessee - Lisa and David. We've been planning on getting some layers for years, and finally decided to take the plunge this year. David has been working hard on the coop, and I've been getting the spare bathtub ready for our new babies. The local co-op (Stockdale's) and TSC just got in their first shipments, so we'll be proud new parents tomorrow! Stockdale's gives you a heads up on what breeds they will have, but TSC apparently just gets a mixed bag, first come first served. We REALLY wanted a flock of Buff Orpingtons, but we're doubtful that TSC will get any and we know that Stockdale's only has gold and black Sex-Links, Barred Rock, and Rhode Island Reds. So unless TSC gives us a surprise, we'll be bringing home a flock of Barred Rocks. The plan is to only get five hens to start, but we'll see how long that lasts! The hubby is planning ahead and built a coop big enough for 10-15 (he knows me too well). So excited!!!
