I'm going to get two Cream Legbars...I want to breed them to my FBCM roo and I was thinking about getting 1 Blue Laced Red Wyandotte and a Lavender Orpington, but I might wait on the last 2 as I want to get a Blue Andalusian per @N F C's suggestion for a beautiful white egg layer and you know how it is if you have to place an order, there is always a minimum!
That chicken math is tricky business :lol:
I do like the Blue Andalusians :loveThe BLRW are beauteous too though, that would be a really tough decision for me!

Chicken math definitely is tricky...I don't want to overcrowd my chickens...but there is a lot of room in my little coop...they snuggle pretty tight and I have at least a whole length of roost bar that doesn't get used and since they have such a huge pen area...I could probably get what I want...I'm actually pretty good at manipulating my chicken math... :gig

They are beautiful, but I wanted the Andalusian before I even thought about the BLRW and I'm also planning on breeding for some Olive Eggers, so I better not go too crazy right now! :D

You're going to have a beautiful (more beautiful) flock Rene!

I’m sitting out back with the ducks as they forage around a bit munching weeds and such. They’re really getting comfortable being around me although it’s almost always Bean and Pip who head my way first. I can even be bent over picking things up and they’ll come right over. Today this gave me a chance to really listen to Fig and I’m almost positive he’s a drake based on voice. I guess that brings me a sense of comfort that I could try hatching some eggs if anything were to happen to them. I’m also really happy I went ahead and ordered more ducklings already. Here’s a few pics from today

I hope Fig's a drake if that's what you want...it would be great to be able to hatch out some ducklings if the need arises! They are so adorable...💞

He reminds of Felix Unger in that picture :gig He’s got his little v-neck sweater on and he’s standing there like such a good little boy. I just don’t think I could eat him.

I’m trying to find the silver lining. They’re a renewable source of food and it’s good to have the option of hatching for that reason. If it turns out he’s a drake he won’t crow so the neighbors won’t have any reason to be mad. It prevents me from having chickens again so only one coop to clean because I can’t separate the two. So there are many problems solved, we’ll roll with it.

Hahaha...Felix Unger...you nailed it...maybe you should rename him Felix if it's a drake! 🤣

Way to be positive IM...sounds like you have it all figured out...they are pretty awesome! 💞
