I told DH this past spring that I wanted to get A chicken. He told me fine, that one chicken would be fine for the both of us. Well I found out that they are companion animals and I couldnt get just one. So one buff orphington turned into two. Then those two turned into 6, two rhode island reds and two easter eggers. Nooooowww I found out about brahma's, cochins and those ugly little frizzles . I just order 6 chicks from Ideal. Two brahma's, two blue cochins, one black frizzle and one white frizzle. All bantams though. They should be getting here 9/10. SO I have to get building. Shhhhh hubby doesnt know yet. I can bet hes gonna kill me though. Lol.
