    I'm so excited,
    My father in law agreed to split the cost of some hatchery BSL Pullets but to my surprise paid for all of it plus food! Sweet! My last crop was last year and I had 31 d'uccle chicks any only lost 2 due to scissor beak. I sold all of them to a young girl and her mother and was chicken less for a year nearly. Now I'm going to be heating up the old brooder box starting tomorrow. I'll post photos when they have settled in on Thursday!

    BSL's are one of two of my top favorites, you'll love them. They are friendly, inquisitive, and superb egg layers.

    Already have a question. This BSL has white feet and a little white mark on its head and the rest have black feet, is this a BSL or a mistake? Either way I love her![​IMG]
