    Holy crap!
    The "only"?
    I understand though. If I had the money to build more buildings and buy more feed and everything else...I'd be right there with ya....they would all have names and hugs and love.

    I feed them by mowing lawns, cleaning coops, and by selling chicks and eggs.

    [​IMG] Sounds like a person after my own heart. I have 15 adults, and have 17 more babies to add. Want to get more but otherhalf says no "YOU HAVE TO MANY" as he beats his head against the wall [​IMG] because I don't listen:plbb . But I just have to have a few of each breed. They are so adorable. Never really liked chickens before, bad experience with Aunts Roo when I was younger, but I absoultely LOVE [​IMG] them to death. Would not know what to do with my day if I didn't have my little darlings to talk to. They all have a different and special personality all their own. YOU GO GIRL.[​IMG]
