    Guess I'm the only idiot that thought Cockrel was a breed. I face is still burning from embarrassment [​IMG]

    Oh, that's okay! When I got my first 8 chicks, from pullet bins, I was told it was a 90% accuracy rate. Then they started growing combs... I thought how the HECK did I get so many roosters? What a HORRIBLE rooster to hen ratio! They're all roosters!!!

    Uh, no. Only one was a rooster.

    I didn't know hens also grow combs.

    Doh!

    The sad thing is I've had chickens for some time already, just have never had people to talk 'chicken' to.

    well, there's plenty of them on here, so you can talk chicken whenever you want, and you'll have a massive audience base... :lol:

    It's okay though, we all have to start somewhere. I can give you plenty of examples of stupid things I thought, albeit about topics other than chickens.
