    So almost three weeks ago (wohoo almost hatch time) I was looking at some eggs since I decided I was going to raise showgirls and silkies. I finally made my final decision on a breed after almost a year of keeping a mixed flock...I was gonna make a big egg purchase since usually I am very cheap! Well I had put the eggs on my mom's ebay watch list and my husbands ebay watch list. They both thought that was a hint since it was a week before my birthday. Well hubby and my mom went WAY up on the bidding....AGAINST EACH OTHER!!! Never realzing it was them bidding against each other LOL. That was ok though they laughed about it. Well I had bid on some eggbid eggs and was gonna let the ebay eggs go. I won those too! So I had 38 eggs come in and have 26 goinginto the hatcher tonight. Well hubby really likes the Exchequer leghorns so I bought him those and the guy sent two dozen...18 are developing nicely! Then he bought me some other eggs and 9 of that dozen are developing! Well that is all great! BUT...............
    Sunday night my mom bought me 12+ silkie eggs at a premium price bless her heart! Then she bought me a 6 showgirl eggs....then she bought me 10+ frizzle eggs!! And the kicker.....my hubby bid on two emu eggs!!! Where the heck will I put all these future chicks! But I am sooooo not complaining on this one! I can't wait to see all the fuzzy butts!!!

    Oh and sorry this isso long butIhad to share the story!!

    The more the merrier!
    My DH has been "complaining" to everybody about all the time I spend with the chickies (it was initially his idea to get them), then last week we had some new egg customers and he told me " we need to get more chickens" because our demand is larger than our supply.
    We are planning on building a new coop, bigger than our current one, and getting more babies this spring. Yay...[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    I didn't tell him I started my chicken wish list last November. [​IMG]
