    Went to the hatchery today with the intentions of getting 4 gold links and 2 barred rocks. Here's what I came home with.

    7 gold links
    1 barred rock
    1 white rock
    4 salmon faverolles
    1 ee
    2 splash hamburgs
    2 blue hamburgs
    1 spangled hamburg
    1 buttercup
    2 blue cochins
    1 lavender cochin
    2 speckled sussex

    Thank goodness they were closing or I probably would have gotten more.

    Warning if you haven't had hamburgs before. My speckled hamburg could fly. As in at least 15 feet, almost straight up into a tree. just a coop design consideration. [​IMG]
