    So 2 weeks ago I pickup 10 chicks at the feedstore. Supposedly(from a girl who showed chickens in 4H) 9 pullets and 1 rooster.... Well now I have 4 pullets and 6 roos.....

    So then I thought maybe I should get more pullets... that, and some talking about yummy Broilers... led me to order some meat birds and get more pullets.

    So... Today I just picked up 5 Auracana's...and of course there was 1 RIR pullet in with a bunch of Barred Rocks, so I had to take her home as well....

    Next week(already ordered) are 15 broilers and 3 ISA-Browns....

    I started with 10 and will end up with 34...... Of course 20 or so of those will be dinner fare...... 2 are gifts to another person.

    I have found myself building a juvenile pen(should finish tonight), preparing brooders about every night.... I haven't even gotten the Adult coop built yet....

    It is everyone who posts on here fault(can't take responsibility for my own actions...) that I have so many chickens.....

    As of today I have:

    3 barred Rocks(1 pullet)
    1 Australorp
    5 RIR(4 pullets)
    2 White Leghorns(don't ask..will be gone)
    5 Auracanas (Pullets)

    Boilerjoe, [​IMG] You've just got started. Next year, you'll have another pen built. You will find another couple of breeds that you want. [​IMG] Don't be shocked when the feeling hits you. There should be comfort in knowing that the rest of us are doing exactly the same thing! Enjoy your birds! [​IMG]
