    My 4yo son talked me into going to the feed store (and we all know that means momma said, "Who wants to go to the feed store and look at chicks?) [​IMG]

    We came home with 3 babies!!!! Easter Eggers!!! [​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG]

    Here they are!

    [​IMG] This one is DD's. Her name is Abigail (the chick, not DD)

    [​IMG]This is mine, I mean DS (18 months). Her name may be Judy.

    [​IMG] This is DS (4yo). He named her Francois. He knows it's a boy name and he doesn't mind that!

    ETA names

    very cute [​IMG]
    I have an order in for 6 more, they should be here on the 15th or 16th.

    I may be having issues with the chicken math ... I am supposed to have 8 in my flock...

    currently, I have 8 hens, 3 chicks (2 months old) and 6 on the way...
    that = 8


    right?

    SOO CUTE ! I want more .... my white EE died during a heat wave we had last summer - she was sooo sweet - loved to hop on your shoulder and ride around like a parrot .....

    I think I need to contact me local feed store .... find out when they are getting them ... They are better than TSC - you don't have to buy a minimum - we're a farming community so I guess they trust that it's not just an easter fad ....

    Not sure what the laws are, but I know most states have a minimum purchase law to deter the easter chick craze ....

    Quote:Actually, I think its wrong. The correct answer is 8+3+6=4. See? You could have 4 more.
    My chicken math is similar. We have 14 on the way, we were originally getting 6. Chicken math is squishy.

    So cute! I love EE chicks! That 2nd one - love the cheeks!

    Looks like we all graduated from the same math school. I got 6 (the limit), lost one (roo), and got 9 more. 6 - 1 + 9 = 4

    Thank goodness most of them were spoken for already (they really weren't supposed to sell them to me because another customer wanted 40 of them [​IMG]). I didn't intend to buy any. We just went to look. Yeah right! I wanted to buy them out and take them all home with me!
