    This morning as I was driving the kids to school my cell phone rings...it was my mother. I knew something must be wrong. She never calls that time of morning, she knows what I am doing and she would have just got back from taking her girls to school. I answer with the expected "hey, what's wrong". Here is what I get "Oh nothing hon. Just wanted to tell you what I saw. There are these chickens in a yard on the road to my house. Two hens and a rooster. They are pretty." So I am thinking she has flipped her lid. Alright, there are chickens....soooooooo [​IMG] So she informs me, "I want you to drive by after you drop the boys off at school. I need to know what those hens are.....I WANT SOME!!!!!!" LOL So I did.....Buff Orpingtons believe it or not! She just got new babies today and she is envying someone else their hens!!! *SIGH* It is madness I tell you!!!!

    LOL!!

    I started with just 3. Then got another. Now we're planning 3 more chicks from MPC as soon as they start taking orders. I'm debating whether I can slip an extra into the order b/c I really want an EE.

    lol! she has it!

    that is to cute and funny!....

    but it's the same as when my dad and uncle were driving to cut a lady yard and they spotted a rooster on side the road.. here they both are running down the road trying to catch a rooster..lol!

    it's like when people see chickens out in the open far from someone house our heads go blank and we just gotta have them! [​IMG]
