    I got a surprise/mistake shipment of chicks (long story) a couple of weeks ago. I live in the 'burbs and can't keep them all, so I've found homes for them.

    I am keeping 1 of the polish pullets, but can't decide! Help!!

    Scooter
    White-crested blue, though I suspect she'll be one of those "25% black"
    Jumps out of the brooder now when she sees me, comes to my knee.
    Getting friendlier by the day
    Pretty calm & inquisitive
    Has an awesome 'fro

    Janice
    Buff-laced, bearded
    Tends to hang out with the BSL I'm also re-homing
    Spazzy & funny
    "Popcorns" all over the place (jumps & flies) - think she'll be a good flyer
    Would be only laced bird in the flock of 10

    Ideas? I go back & forth on which personality I like better. Today it's Scooter. I have to decide by tonight, as their new owner is coming to pick them up soon.

    Blue is the 'new' BCM. I'd keep Scooter.

    OHHHH. [​IMG]
    That is a very hard decision.[​IMG]
    But from the brief description, I would say Scooter.
    Good luck. [​IMG]

    Keep scooter, she's bonded to you and the other one has bonded with one you are giving away anyway so less traumatic for both if you do that.


    Scooter, Scooter, Scooter! Oh and pics would help too;)

    We've only uploaded pics from the first day we had the chicks, and before the surprise shipment arrived.

    Here's Scooter 2 weeks ago:

    Are you keeping for breeding or just pets?
    If pets, I'd go with Scooter, since I love any friendly bird.

    I agree! keep little Scooter! [​IMG]

    But if Janice had the same friendly attitude, I would keep her as I think that would be a nice mix of colors for your flock!

    Strictly pets & eggs.

    I'm definitely thinking "Scooter", too. [​IMG]
