    Well, the last time we went in to buy feed, and ended up with 2 chicks, the owner said he was not ordering anymore.. so I thought I was safe from buying anymore babies until next season.

    Well, I call today to find out if they can order food grade DE for me, and what do I hear in the background? Yep, you guessed it, PEEPING!!!

    Now it looks like I might be able to round my flock numbers up to 10 afterall! Anyone know where there's a Chicks Anonymous meeting in Louisiana?

    I've had bantams in with my standards and they do fine matter of fact my bantams were at the top of the pecking order. Plus they slept on the roost next to Zaxby every night.

    You guys are great!! I think I will go get a few barred rock pullets.. for the eggs, mind you. I hear they are excellent layers, and very docile.
