    My DH knows better than to let me into TSC during chick days! [​IMG] I got four new babies to add to my brooder! [​IMG] I put them in with the older ones because their is only a weeks difference in age, But the SIZE! My week olds are twice the size of the newbies! They seem to all be getting along though. I've had to change my brooder from a box to a baby crib!

    Wonder what will happen tomorrow? I'm going to the Chicken and Egg festival! Possibly MORE babies? As if 14 weren't enough![​IMG]



    edit to add, will be posting pics as soon as I get some batteries for the camera. Then y'all can tell me what I've got. Other than "chicken fever" that is.

    That was just too funny! I miss my ducks - fox got 'em a few years ago. [​IMG] My TSC did not get ducks this year or I too would have had to get some. Thankfully we don't have a pool! LOL!

    Mine doesn't let us buy less than six, so it helps with the "urge" to buy more chicks! [​IMG]

    Well, I went to the Alabama Chicken and Egg festival today. I got 4 new chicks! 2 are supposed to be Brahmas, and 1 is an Arcuna, the last is a black star. Then I went over to a friend's father's house and he GAVE me 24 BB chicken eggs! So now the bator is full as well![​IMG] [​IMG]. I hope I mostly have pullets, but guess we'll wait and see![​IMG]
