    Cross your fingers for me folks I am off to go look at a pair of cochin pullets that are 6 months old. I am uber excited.

    I have 1 chicken right now, I have heard that when it is dark I can slip new chickens into the coop with her and she should be none the wiser. Is this true? also what else should I watch for? Keep in mind I have true backyard chickens so i really do not have the space to separate them if the get rowdy with each other.

    I will post pics if I get them :)

    You should be fine! [​IMG]
    The chicken you have right now will probably boss the new ones around, don't worry this is normal!
    Hope you get them! [​IMG]

    Thanks for wishing me luck!
    [​IMG] I brought the 2 6mo pullets home with me YAY!! I will post pics tomorrow it's too dark to see them in all their glory. They are GORGEOUS didn't realize they were quite as big as they are.
    My DH got to see them when I got home and he says I brought home EMUS not chickens [​IMG]

    My new girls are black, with that green shine on their feathers. I can't wait to post their photos!! At 6 months these girls tower over Speckles who is about 4 months.

    Speckles (my BR) is ticked with me [​IMG] If look could kill, I am getting constant stink eye from her.

    I hope she forgives me soon, I miss my chickie cuddles!!!
