    I might keep buying them until they actualy arrive and then I'm trying to figure out where I'm gonna put em all.LOL I wanted a few silkies but wasn't sure how my big o Cochin's would be around them.Don't want anyone getting picked on. Now I have a BO hen who is sitting on eggs and I don't have the heart to break her up from it.I was able to count them real quick and she has 9 under her.Uhoh! Owell more fuzz butts [​IMG]

    This is a bad place to go for that. They'll just tell you to get more. Trust me I planned for 8-10 bantams and you don't want to know how many they talked me into. [​IMG] I don't even know how many chicks I have now. [​IMG]

    I'll be posting pics as soon as they arrive. It's still kinda cool here 40s-high 50s Think they will be ok in our garage or should I set up something inside the house?
