    I brought my first flock home yesterday!!!
    I was going to meeting in Raleigh thinking about getting three hens or pullets but left with the flock of ten complete with seven pullets, one hen and two roosters! And I got the my first blue egg from now my hen!
    All ladies and gentleman are going great and getting along.

    Thank you ChickMomma, Peeps, Coreync and Margaret for beautiful birds!

    That is great!
    They must have settled in in a hurry and are very happy with their new surroundings.

    I will try to post pictures today when I get my camera back. I was so exited I had to share with somebody who would understand even if I don't have pictures.
