    Oh can we talk!!!! Let me just get my coffee.....

    I just got my order I placed in February for Copper Marens, Cuckoo Marens, Partridge Cochin, and three little Bantams. That Partridge cochin is a little brown fudgy colored beauty, I just love her.

    My personal chicken count is 4 hens 1 Rooster all a year old now, 3 bantam roos, 2 cochin pullets (Jan hatchers) 3 hatchlings from my Broody Dot (one is def a roo) Hatched 5/4, 20 variety Pullets hatched 6/14 - I so need to sell some. I love em all but I think I need to sell at least 10 and I have the 7 newbies 8/1 hatched. So on my little chicken farm where I only planned to have 4 hens I have ten times that = 40 chickens.

    OMGOSH FORTY CHICKENS!!!!! EEEEK no wonder my hubby is concerned!

    Sure we can....I really want serama chickens. they're so cute! [​IMG]
    my big pullets were chasing the silkies today under the deck..they are very annoying, but havn't actually hurt the silkies. they (big girls) just gobble down their (the silkies) food! I told them to start laying me eggs already...but it is too early. [​IMG]

    I'm a first time chicken owner with 2 EE's that my DH gave me for my birthday this year. They're now 6 weeks old. I think one of my chickaboos is a roo, so I've been searching the area for more chicks. Can't seem to find any! My two tend to fight over the same dust bathing hole. I posted a video of it on Facebook, and everyone seemed to love it. When will yours arrive? It's so exciting to get to know them!

    They will arrive soon! I want a roo badly just for their beauty and cockiness (LOL) But we have neighbors close by (and we just moved in) So we don't want to be rude.... I have a county fair coming up in week and we will get them the week after because we will be gone alll day there because we ride horses with 4-H... I might get 1 or 2 at the fair petting zoo also.. but im worried they might be roo's...
