    Well will be adding four rhode island reds to my family of 5 tomorrow. I live in southeast texas and been having difficulty finding some birds. The feed stores are all out of back ordered etc.. Happened to call a different one that is a little further out of the way and they a few different breeds that that had just got today. I could make it to pick up so, she said she would hold them for me. I dont remember what all breeds they had but i would like to try a brown egg layer, i think they had some leghorns and maybe americanas also. So i will be getting some 2 day old baby chicks tomorrow. just wanted to say hi. and thanks for great website.
