    I received an email from a man today that was getting rid of his chickens, and wanted to know if I wanted them. [​IMG] Duh... Dude! Iwent to see them and now they are mine. [​IMG] I picked up 4 austrolorps (I've always wanted some) 1 roo and 3 hens. an americauna roo and a speckled sussex hen (prettier than I expected. Photos don't do them justice) I didn't get to spend much time with them, so I am anxious to see them tomorrow. I will take picks of them and all my others, and post here tomorrow. [​IMG] Now I HAVE to build that other coop and run. And a HUGE thank you to Jeff. The man who gave them to me.

    Quote:I am. I have read the horror stories. So they are in a "holding cell" far from my others. Thanks.
