    First Dick Horstman let me down with his shipment. Now Frank Reese had a winter storm and could not ship the barred rocks and giant Jersies.

    I originally was going to rely on these two orders. I am glad I did not.

    It supposed to be spring. This weather is killing me.

    I am scrambling today to see if I can get some local "less heritage" birds.

    I have still some great breeds coming but the quality of the birds from Dick and Frank are legendary - you know - you have some.

    Right now I am down to Dorkings, Orps, Turkens, SPRs for LF. 5 of my major breeding groups wiped in 2 emails.

    ,I will contact Odyssey Ranch in Lancaster to see if I can get some New Hampshire Cochin and Cuckoo Marans. in quantities of at least 18 by tomorrow.
