So my current little flock were chosen for their temperament and egg production. Now, they're just reaching 6 weeks and are about to be put into the coop and run. But I'm already trying to plan my next flock. I say "next" because I'm living with my parents and I convinced them to get chickens on our property instead of forking over money for organic eggs or whatever. And so I plan to be moving out in the next year and a half and would want to get my own little backyard flock. I know I'm just over zealous. I wanted to have a colorful egg basket so I was looking at breeds based on that. And all the while I'm going, "Oh my gosh, calm down, you may not even be able to have chickens when you move out!" But I just had to get this out somewhere. My friends all think I'm chicken-crazy (okay so maybe I am). I just get so excited thinking about it.
