Wow, just have to share - we added three new hens to our flock today!!! Started in May by wanting 6 hens. Ordered 10, switched 3 for the right chicks with other families that ordered jointly with us (impossible to separate those fuzzy butts real well) and ended up with 11, one died because our dog got it , adopted five hens who needed a new home, rehomed an agressive and loud roo, added two polish and a super sweet partridge cochin came along as well. Whew!! Is everyone's experience like this??? I can't wait to get up early and play with the new tiny polish chickies and see how the cochin likes her new home. I am totally hooked!
