    We are down a couple chickens currently. We have bantams, 1 roo and 1 hen both white silkies. With winter coming up I knew I needed more so they could stay warm in their coop so I bought a new hen at the flea market today (one near us has animal sales) but I fell in love with the silver sebrights so I ordered a couple from Ideal Poultry (its in TX which is nearby and still has some due to the climate probably). I ordered 2 random bantams, 3 sebrights, and 3 white silkies! I'm hoping I get at least 3 hens out of 8!! 1 of each MINIMUM! I'm also hoping since its a small order they will be able to ship it in four days =))

    She's a partridge. These are old pics. She's 21 weeks old at the moment.

    Nope. Not yet! I hope she starts soon though!
     
  7. Just a suggestion. The color you have selected for your font is almost impossible to read. Perhaps something in a darker shade.

    Sorry! I'll just stick to black. There is a similar color I use on a different forum that shows up great but I see what you mean!
