Yep, I am finally done brooding chicks in the house. The dust and poop on my floor has gotten to my last nerve. It's been over 2 months, so I feel I tolerated it plenty long enough. I sectioned off my 30x12' shed so the girls have 20x12' of it. I moved all the pullets in to the shed and put the roosters in the coop. There are 24 rooster in there and 2 I am not quite sure of in with the pullets. I alos moved my 6x4' brooder into the shed with the pullets. I have 4 Silkies, 2 Tetra Tints (w/ spots) and my 8 new chicks in there. It's taken me the better part of 2 weeks to get all of this done. I have been taking care of a semi-invalid 79yr old woman who's going through a divorce for the last 2 weeks. We finally got her back into her own home and quite a bit of stress has been lifted. This will be the first time I've been able to post since this all started, actually. I did manage to go to Chcickenstock at Steph and Jason's on Saturday (New Tripoli, PA). I went with 10 pullets and came back with the same 10. I met a couple of BYCers and I had a good time. To brighten my day, Agway called to let me know they had extra Barred rocks, since I am pretty sure all 5 BRs and the 5 PRs I got from them are roos, I put my name on a list for pullets. I went to pick my girls up and saw they still had Buff Orpingtons! So, I got 4 of each! Yay! So excited! I'm so happy to be back on BYC! I missed it these last 2 weeks!
