    Bec THE Delaware Blue Hen

    I am super excited! I took some babies home from my daughters classroom, 4 of them. I got 1 Barred Rock, 1 Leghorn and 2 easter eggers..well they call them Ameracaunas, but I really doubt it. I left the school and stopped by the feed store and there were MORE babies, so I got 1 more EE and a Partridge cochin. When I was paying the guy said that the Partrdige Cochins were from a local show breeder that had more babies than what he needed. Well I found out who they were from and I ended up with 6! The breeder is a very well known poultry judge and also happens to breed Standard Partridge Cochins...the are GORGEOUS!

    UMmmm, Bec??? Don't you know the rules? When buying show birds, you MUST buy at least a dozen to get a good variety, as not every one will be show quality and you always need a first place and a second place in every class??? What were you thinking? Just six? Okay, so go back and buy the rest of them!!! And, of course if that is too many you can ship them to ME!!!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    What a great find you made! But only six, I just can't imagine that.

    I bought all they had! IF they had more I would have had them alllll!! [​IMG] After I bought the first 2, I went home and thought about it. I called and asked if he could hold the rest of what he had and he said "Sure Thing!" 12 sure would have been nice [​IMG] I will get pics soon!
