i feel i am truly being tortured! i can only have about 8 hens because i don't live in the country. and we decided to replace them every 3 years. of course not ALL of them will be replaced since they are all pets....but after 3 years, i will have to choose 2 to keep and then we will replace the rest with new chicks. but they are all pretty young, ranging in age from 8 months to 2 years old. i know i shouldn't do this, but lately i've been going onto My Pet Chicken just to do a "pretend" order and it's killing me! i wish i could order babies every year!! even if it's only a few! what do you guys do to help get through a year or two without ordering new girls? any tips?
