    I'll take some more pics of some of my animals tomorrow [​IMG] We officially have way too many birds though [​IMG] I think we're up to 60+ ducks and geese and over a 100 chickens. I came home from work yesturday and my husband had a really nice surprise for me. He had gotten me 3 silver appleyard ducks. They are absolutely beautiful [​IMG] He got 2 females and one male so next spring I'll be hatching out ducklings. We're going to get rid of a lot of our ducks though. They eat way to much [​IMG]

    Your chicks are very cute [​IMG] My daughter wants silkies, but I've been told that they don't do well in the cold weather, so my husband gt her a couple bantam rhode island reds. The D'uccles are kind of neat too.

    Oh, my husband doesn't think that it's a silkie either we don't know what it is [​IMG] sorry

    I work for the Post Office as a sub so I really only work a couple days a week. Plus I've been a stay home mom for 5 years. My oldest is 5 and it didn't make much since paying a babysitter and working to only end up not brining in very much extra money. You're so lucky to live in the UK. I absolutely love Lavender Orpingtons and no one in the US has them that pretty. the ones that are close are so expensive and half the time you can only get eggs. They really have some nice birds over there. [​IMG] I have some Lavender split eggs coming this week so I'm really looking forward to seeing what I get. the split cochins we have are beautiful, but I really want the lavender Orpingtons.
