    I am going out to the farm supply to get 3 easter eggers that come in today. We already have 11 chicks at home and my "limit" is 14. I have been tossing around the idea of getting some barred rock though. DH will kill me if I get more than the 3 I am supposed to get! Send so be strong mojo my way!

    I understand the pain of the feed store chick bin.. it's how I went from 2 chicks, to 7 chicks. (Can you imagine, I actually thought at one time that 2 chicks would be enough!!)

    Now my feed store is out of chicks, and I can't afford the shipping and such from MyPetChicken right now, so I am holding at 7 for now. So I can spare lots of willpower, sending it your way!!!

    You'll have a much better chance of recieving... "resisitance support" if you don't ask a bunch of chicken addicts!!! [​IMG]

    Good luck tho... [​IMG]

    Heh...I think you are asking the wrong people. I've been avoiding going to the feed store because DH told me they have baby ducks, and I know I won't be able to resist! [​IMG]

    ok do what I do hope that they have sold all of the extras and when this fails I fall back on the "well you can usually expect to loss a couple and then just in case this happens you need to pick up a couple of extras" Good luck with self control, I don't seem to have any myself.
