Sooooo, when I got my 9 little chickies 3 months ago, people thought I was insane. I would get incredulous looks with big saucer eyeballs, "Nine chickens? Wow! What are you going to do with nine chickens?" My DH was really annoyed because he thought 5-6 would be the perfect size flock. So I thought I was waaaay overboard. Then I joined the BYC. Now I feel underdressed with only 9 chickens. So what do I do? I went to the feed store and ordered 3 buff orpington pullets. If it weren't for the BYC I never would've fallen in love with this breed. Every time I see anyone's avatar with a BO my heart skips a beat! I guess I'm a BO groupie if you will. I especially adore Buff Hooligan's hooligans. So, a big thank you to all you enablers out there! I'll post pics of my new babies when they get here in about 2 1/2 weeks. I can't wait!!
