    It only seems logical. If more people want eggs than you have eggs you need more factories lol.

    And with them putting so many birds down in the east the demand can only grow.

    As Mr.Spock would say, " more chickens is the only logical decision! "

    Okay, so today I ordered 2 Blue Ameraucanas plus 1 Easter Egger that I really, REALLY hope my husband allows me to swap out for a much-pricier Lavender Orpington. To complicate the situation, my daughter has chicken AND duck math, so yesterday we bought 2 Black Cayuga ducks. I swore on my own grave we'd NEVER, EVER get another duck, but I must have lied...so, 33-2+3+2=36. There's a problem here for sure, but it couldn't possibly be me.

    I'm pretty sure the government is performing some unsanctioned experiment that makes normal people lose all control at the sight and thought of baby poultry!!! I mean it CAN'T BE US!!! :)

    I think it is a general human obsession with all things tiny and cute lol.

    Is it normal to sell a few of my own chicks for a few bucks and then plan to replace them with a whole incubator of expensive hatching eggs. This is a little more than an obsession.

    Its not very financially sound though. Its kinda funny though. My husband is away all next week so I have a 4 hour trip and over 100 dollars for 24 eggs planned and I havent told him a thing. He will come home to a bator full of blue eggs never knowing a thing.

    Its for the best!

    Sometimes it's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.
