    Help! I'm going to be living in the chicken coop soon! I placed my first chick order a little over a week ago. Came to be 14 chicks. I got a Serama pair, one silkie, 7 teenager partridge silkies and a white cochin-statue in the mean time. I have eggs in the incubator but its gone from 18-4...[​IMG] I have a pregnant adopted cat who seems like shes been pregnant for years!
    ...........

    And I just ordered the Ideal Bantam Special! I've lost my mind!![​IMG] And .95 cents each!![​IMG]

    But my 4 dogs looooove the chickens and of course I do too. (they keep the dogs entertained!) My current flock is mostly indoor chickens. With diapers and big parrot cages. Even though I have a huge coop/run and free-range yard.

    I've definitely gone mad! Anyways, anyone have some Bantam special babies too????


    And no eggs yet either! So much for "But they lay eggs and eat the bugs!!" [​IMG]

    Haha! It's sad isn't it..... One day they may make a law. I read the other day someone saying chickens were going to go extinct! They must have been high.

    Looks like i'm going to have to have a chicken swap soon. They are going to be so cute though!!!!

    When I made my first order, I slept for 2 hours the nite before they were to arrive at the post office! Hopefully I can do better this next time. I'll still fly out of bed when I get that phone call!!! [​IMG]


    What chickies do you have???
