    I've been thinking of adding 6 more chicks lately and had been holding off because my DH said we had enough. We have 19 8wk old chicks and I was thinking 25 sounded like a good number since I am having such a blast with the others. So today I went to a nearby tsc hoping they had gotten in some more GLW's that I had missed out on a week ago, but no luck. [​IMG]

    HOWEVER, all their chick bins had signs on them that all chicks/ducks were only .50 cents each!!! [​IMG]
    No way was I walking out of there empty handed! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    I got 10 new fuzzy butts! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    19 + 10= 25, right? [​IMG] Yay chicken math. [​IMG]

    I called DH when I got in my car and I am now officially a bad bird. [​IMG] I don't care , though, they're so cute! [​IMG]
    I walked out with 7 bantams (no idea what breeds) and 3 leghorns. Here is a photo of 7 of the 10. I couldn't get them all together.

    Girl I did the same thing last week!.. I attempted to call my BF while at TSC to "ask" him if it was okay, and when he didn't answer I told the girl to box 'em & ring me up before he had a chance to call me back! MWAHAHA! The BF wasn't exactly excited, but he got over it very quickly. [​IMG]

    It was so hard to stop at 10! I don't know how I'm going to resist going back in before they are all gone. [​IMG]

    Stopped at TSC for some feed. RIR were $0.25.

    Walked out with a bag of feed and a bale of bedding. That was it!

    Maybe I should go back tomorrow???[​IMG]
