    This coming Wednesday I'm picking up a half dozen chickens from a fellow BYCer: a buff orpington roo, an OEGB hen, 2 mottled cochin hens, and a pair of Mille D'Fleur Uccles. All except the cochins are 3 months old. (And yeah, I know -- more than on roo. Don't worry, we've got two runs and we're planning on major separating and out of sight-ed-ness.)

    I am SO excited. These are the first chickens I've bought from anywhere but TSC. I love my TSC sex-link pullets, but I can not wait to see some birds that aren't hatchery stock, you know?

    Not to mention just plain PRETTY and bantams and feathered feet and--

    Yeah, hyper with excitement over here. It's going to be a LONG weekend/early part of next week. I'm going to be a fixture on the boards, I think, just to keep from driving my (poor, long suffering) husband bonkers.

    I know it is silly, but I have red leghorns coming next week. I just had to have them!

    I got really antsy and decided I couldn't wait, so I found a spot in my schedule for tomorrow evening. I'm so, so excited. It's odd, usually I'm fairly patient. NOT THIS TIME. I want those guys and gals. Besides, the longer I have to wait, the more inclined I am to add to my order.

    So, 30 hours (ish) to go. I may actually count-down from here.
