    So yes I went to the feed store and guess what?

    Oh come on now guys you will never ever guess what happened after that?! [​IMG]

    Yes I got a RIR chick because I just never have enough chicks. My thought was...well I am not getting any RIR hatching eggs in the future so at least I will have a RIR pullet and I can keep her cause its a she. LOL!

    Goood freaking greif, I am pathetic. Now DH is gonna come home and just really wonder if I am a alien! LOL!

    I know what you mean. I have to go to Tractor Supply to get layer feed, and I just dread it. I have to go past the chick pens to get the feed. [​IMG]

    I know you had at least 2 or 3 RIR eggs but it's no guarantee who the roo was.The 10 I hatched in december that are 12 weeks old, 6 of them are pure RIR's.So maybe just maybe. [​IMG]
