I can't help my self! I just ordered 10 more chicks and 6 ducks! UGH!

5 Blue Cochin
1 White Cochin
5 Blue Wyandottes
8 Black Star
15 Red Star
8 Delaware
2 Buff Orpington
6 Bared Plymouth Rock
2 Easter egger
2 Welsummer
3 Pekin ducks
3 Khaki Cambell ducks

I said under 50 is a good number but I went over with my spontanius purchase.Dag gonit! Looks like DH is gonna be adding some nest boxes.LOL All are hens but are 1 white Cochin "Duke" he's the King of the flock.

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

Delawares are my absolute favorite! I've got six girls myself.

Congrats on the soon to be new arrivals.

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.
I don't even know how many chicks I have now.

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?
