I think I'm beginning to understand chicken math! This is my first time for chickens. We were going to get 8 easter eggers so each of the grandkids could name one. I called Meyer hatchery and they would not be ready until May so I thought I would order the mininum 3 and get the EE's in May. I ordered 3 Buff Orpingtons. We went to pick them up yesterday and I told my daughter these were my golden girls I was going to name the Rose, Dorothy, and Blanche. Daughter said I should have ordered a 4th for Sophia. so I asked for the 4th when we got there. Then I noticed a bin and asked if they were for sale. Oh my they were! So I thought I might as well get the grandkids theirs so they would all be about the same age. She gave me 4 Golden Buff and 4 darker ones I have no clue what they are. So I went for 3 and came home with 12 and didn't even get EE I oringinally wanted.
