    Ok, I purposely did not set my bators up this year so I wouldn't hatch any. Than it happened...Ideal set an email [​IMG] and well, they were on sale so I just had to rescue some, right?

    They came today- 40 standard mix and25 bantam mix. They are sooo sweet:jumpy How could I think I could go a year without them???[​IMG] Now comes the best part, trying to figure out what they are:idunno Any ideas??

    I do have a question though...will I EVER be cured of this addiction??? [​IMG] I'm so glad I have a place to come and speak of this addiction with others who are as, if not more, addicted as I.[​IMG]

    Here are some pics of my new "kids"[​IMG]

    If there was a cure, I am sure that my husband would have found it for me by now!

    Looks like you have some Polish in there and I think I saw a couple EE's. Hope they all do well and get us some more pics!! [​IMG]

    Congrats on the new chickies!! [​IMG] Nope no cure!
    Recent discussion with DH:
    Me: There will be more chickens.
    DH: No there won't
    Me:Yes there will
    DH: No there won't
    Me: YES THERE WILL
    DH: I'm getting another dog then, a BIG one.
    Me: OK just not a German Shepard, they are not so good around horses.
    DH: Huh? (I don't think he expected my reply LOL)

    So I am considering this his permission even if he doesn't get the dog!
