    Just a few free eggs to hatch, thought it would be nice. I had a few Guinea's wanted a few chickens.

    In one year, I now have 21 Guineas, which isnt too bad. I ended up with 7 hens and 4 roosters, gave two roosters away. I was in control!

    Control, just what is that? I just ordered 36 chickens due middle of April. OMG! what was I thinking. [​IMG] I need help serious help

    Uhm...I think you came to the wrong place for help. It's like an alcoholic walking into a bar asking for help for his addiction.... but if it's any consolation, you're not alone with your problem. [​IMG]

    There is no help. Just keep adding on to the hen house.

    Well Rooster0209, what started out as a mercy mission to save 5 chickens has ended up in a backyard full of over 60. Back away from the computer, they are all enablers here!! [​IMG]

    You want help picking out names? There's lots of folks here that can help with really cute creative chicken names.

    Help decorating a designer coop that will rival your home? With lots of lovely nestboxes that will remain empty because all then hens want to use the same one or the empty feed bags or under the tractor?

    There's lots of help available here. In adding to your lovely new collection or you may need some to test out the nest boxes to make sure they're comfortable before your little chickies arrive.

    Oh, and did you know that silkies come in different colors? [​IMG]
