    see that right there!!! That's the problem! !! Those fuzzy little things.. AHHHH I WANT MORE MORE MORE!!!

    Before yall think I'm crazy or going over board, I have buyers for my eggs. That's why I am safe buying a load of chickens. And I'm in a farm community so I'm safe to go all out fowl. :)

    Heyyyyy, I protest!!!![​IMG] I don't recall enabling you at all!!! Seriously, though, I really hope I don't get carried away and get any chickens when I come. [​IMG] I shouldn't even have as many as I currently have, in my tiny backyard! I should probably have half as many, if even. I may be able to resist chicks, since to my untrained eye, they mostly look the same; but if I see any pretty adult birds, I would be severely tempted. I was googling pics of a few I saw you guys mentioned, and some are definitely eye candy, like the pavlovskaya. But I suppose it's the roosters that have the nicest plumage, so since I'm not allowed roosters, I should be safe from buying any, unless I completely lose my marbles. My one accidental rooster is already too much. Y'all pinch me if I look like I might buy any live critters. But I could definitely get a plant or four.

    I'll let you know how the Pavlovskaya hens turn out. Just for your reference in 8-10 years if you replace any of your current birds... haha. I'm not bringing any plants but will probably consider buying some. Now that I think about it I could start some vegetable or herb plants. I'm not sure how much space I'll have in my garden so I might have some left overs...

    Who knew such a tiny, innocent looking creature could have so much power, lol.

    I'm sure the Pav hens will be beautiful. Black & orange w big hair & beards, how could they not be? This is another issue I have w chickens: so many amazing varieties & colors. Must stay strong...

    My intended list of plants as follows: thyme, parsley, sage, oregano(greek & italian), yarrow, sweet woodruff, lambs' ears, beebalm, chives, hen & chicks, lemon balm, ?foxgloves, coneflower.
    It seems I will also be bringing some Mille Fleur Barbu D'Uccle chicks........
    I'm still undecided on the potluck food ....any simple requests? I can feed chickens but I'm no human chef.....[​IMG]

    your right you didn't enable me, I enabled you.

    But now you are added to the "no critter " list. Its for your own safety or I would convince you to buy 1 of each. :) Yes I am evil.

    We are fighting a no win battle. Those of us with the space, enthusiasm and time are out of luck I do think. Its just to much fun to sit in the back yard and watch the to not get more.
