    then I won a chicken contest and so I'll have

    4 Black Copper Marans
    3 Double-Laced Barnevelders
    2 Silver Cuckoo Marans.

    coming in next week. Our first flock of 5 (2 Barred Rock, 2 Tetras and a RIR) just graduated to the outside coop/run so at least the brooder box is ready for them.

    You all weren't lying about chicken math. Now we must begin coop expansion.

    Haha! Aint that the truth. I had a feeling when I entered the contest that I would win, and I did. I'm excited for chocolate eggs. My first little flock isn't even laying yet. I wonder if I'll have issues introducing them to each other in a few weeks.

    9 + my previous flock of 5 = 14 But we have decided that we will re-home 4 of them for an even 10. We know a guy who keeps bees and has a coop but no chickens. So I will raise the babies and then have a very tough decision to make but will be rewarded with local honey as a trade.
