    We've already got 7 girls of various lineage and wanted to add 1 or two more. Ended up coming home with 4 four week old pullets. Oh well more comedic relief:)

    Two Rhode island reds (Darrell and Daryl), a Dominique (Larry) and an ee named jack two to replace a not too bright welsummer who tried to eat a light bulb and failed to digest it (pulled a klinger from mash)

    My parents said i wasn't allowed to have chickens. So i hatched one behind their backs. 1 turned to 4. Now i have 30. I don't know what happened.

    Ouch. I don't think glass digests well.

    I see you are not only a MASH fan, but a Newhart fan as well. "Hi, I'm Larry, and this is my brother Darryl and my other brother Darryl." [​IMG]

    Exactly! Not too many people get that reference when they get their eggs.

    Yeah the chicken math is funny business. We started out wanting 5 or 6 but now we have 13 chickens and 14 chicks and more ordered for next week. Now we are building a new coop so that means we will have room for more, yep its gonna keep going.
