I had sent my husband to buy some baby pullets at TSC and told him I wanted a variety. Instead, he bought six of the same kind (red stars.) We already had six leghorns (or possibly white rocks, I'm not sure) and I feel like we really don't have room for more than a dozen chickens. I really wanted some barred Rocks and perhaps another variety too. I had been hoping he'd get two each of three different breeds (TSC says you have to buy six at once) but he just got what was the "easiest," and he said he "thought those were all different anyway." Don't get me wrong... I love the red stars and the leghorns, too. I don't want to *not* have them, but I wanted *less* of them, leaving room open for some others as well. So, I'm thinking about doing one of two things... I could go ahead and buy 6 more chicks (18 total) and then take several of them to be processed and eaten as fryers when they get older. That way I would be able to pick and choose among my flock and decide which I'd want to keep as laying hens. OR I could just suck it up and have only leghorns and red stars for a while. What do you all think you would do in this situation?
