    This journey has been full of so many surprises, but today I think was the mot exciting of all! I came home and, of course, first thing I did was check on my babies! To my surprise and great joy there where two new chicks along with the other 4 in a plastic tote even bigger than the one we had before! My mom called the Farmers Exchange today claiming she "had a funny feeling" that they would have a few extra from the Wednesday, March 21 2012 batch and to her joy there was!

    She went to find that 5 Easter-Eggs had been left over from the batch and they had to get rid of them. She says that she felt bad only taking the two, but we couldn't handle 9 full sized chickens in our nice, but not the most luxurious coop in the world! So she went picked out the two bought a bigger tote and surprised me greatly when I arrived home. There is conflict about their names... My mom origionally said Bonnie and Connie which I thought was absolutely ADORABLE! But of course my younger sister can't deal and has to put up a fight! i will write more later...

    Until Then,

    Easter Eggers are the best, especially the muffed and bearded ones with all of their face floof!

    Congratulations and welcome to BYC. I really like EE's too. I currently have an adult flock of 27 assorted breeds and 7 of them are EE's. I am getting more chicks in less than 2 weeks and 3 or 4 of these will be EE's. The green eggs are very popular with my egg customers.
