    Hi,

    My son and I hatched eggs a couple of years ago, and this time I decided to buy chicks instead. I was at Tractor Supply last Thursday and they happen to have new chicks, I couldn't help myself or could I make up my mind. OK so I went home with 14 babies, but wait! I had to go back on Friday to pick up a couple of items and I really tried not to look at the chicks, but they got in another shipment so I had to get three RIR,s and three silky bantams mixed to go with other two I had. I am now the proud Mama of 20 babies. Do you know how long it takes to hold and talk to 20 baby chicks? Thank God they weren't puppies....

    I will post pictures later... Thanks for letting me be here!

    Glad to meet you Henny. Aren't you glad you didn't have four feet to jump in with? I like your enthusiasm and decision making skills. I always believe if you can't make up your mind, take them all.[​IMG]
