    BUT ONLY BECAUSE i WENT TODAY AND CHICK DAY AT THE CO-OP DOESN'T START TIL THURSDAY!!! [​IMG] I needed chick food and dog food (and crickets for chicks too) and when I went in there were 20 brooders set up! [​IMG] I started to slowly walk BACK OUT the door and the owner saw me and said it was ok to come in, "They chicks won't be here til Thursday." I immediately thought CRAP!!!!!! [​IMG] But then I took a deep breath and said I have yard work to do on Thursday and Friday if it's nice out (please let it be nice out! [​IMG] ) and I won't b able to come back. I already have 29 chics!!! I don't need anymore. [​IMG] But I want them!!! [​IMG] But my coop and run will hold no more!!! [​IMG] Why didn't I have the DBF build on to the coop?? [​IMG] Please share pics of ur baby chicks so I can look at someone else's babies! Please, please, please?? [​IMG]

    I did! Check ur thread for my name. I changed my pic! [​IMG] I said u should def get the burnt sienna one, the old man one, the cute fuzzy yellow one and the black and white one! [​IMG] I think u should stop at just 4-5 chicks. NOT!!! TAKE AS MANY AS U CAN AND RUN!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] What is really bad is that I don't have anything to stop me from going back up there on Friday. I really could buy 1 more...but then he would need a buddy...and I am so ready to get my 29 peeps out in the coop now, that I don't want to start over again with babies!! [​IMG] Why do they have to be so dang cute!! [​IMG]

    we are limited to 10 chickens in city limits, we have 5 which is enough for our first time raising chicks, next time definitely 10.
    Your coop and run are really nice - wish we had that much room

    I feel your pain I went to the feed store yesterday and they had Plymouth Rock Pullets thank goodness they had a sign that said "sorry all chicks are sold" over the bin! I took it as a sign from a higher power that I didn't need anymore than the 9 I have for right now. Besides DH would have probably killed me if he came home from work and there were 11 chicks in the brooder.

    I have 2 Barred Rocks and they r probably the friendliest chicks I have. I had to go to town today and was very close to the Co-Op...but it's Wednesday and chicks won't be there til Thursday...so I avoided disaster again!! [​IMG]

    This cracked me up! I've been having the same problem, and managed to resist all season. Until today, when I had too much time on my hands at work and ended up looking at chick schedules for local feed stores. I'm fairly certain I'm not going to make it home tonight without new chicks.
