    I was exploring the my pet chicken site(I know I shouldn't have) and I was sucked into ordering 3 slw chicks, this will bring my total to 7 with 2 suspected roos. The cuteness was just too much and then I noticed that I didn't have to order vast numbers and it went downhill from there [​IMG]. I just got the e-mail that my new peeps will be getting here the week of the 30th!!

    LOL!! When I need to go to the feed store, I am thinking to myself "please don't let them have chick, or God forbid.....DUCKLINGS!!!!" I am set with feed for a couple of weeks, so hopefully I will not be tempted!!![​IMG]

    Now I just have to worry about the online temptations!! THAT is hard, cause I do love eggs!!

    If you only ordered 3, then you are safe for now! Just wait until you start placing orders that are 10 times that much!

    The day will come... [​IMG]

    I started out with 3 birds in 2007, today...I think I am just under 60 birds and growning.

    OMG, changing breeds now.....LOL

    The addiction continues....but at least it is legal.

    Enjoy.
