    They're growing seemingly before my eyes!

    and last but not least Isis, who decided after riding around in the dog's mouth, she'd earned the right to be top hen (and she doesn't let the others forget it)

    Thanks y'all. I'll pass along your compliments to the gang. Right now the chooks and I are keeping a low profile after I let it slip to my SO that I paid $4 for a bunch of strawberries for the chicks. The wild strawberries were all gone and they do love their berries. [​IMG]

    Quote:Not yet and I promised my SO no more chickens. But I have a plan. I do have two roosters. My SO knows how forgetful I get sometimes. When I'm ready for some new chicks, I'll just "forget" to colllect some eggs. [​IMG]

    Smart thinking. [​IMG] I'm already trying to figure out how I'm gonna sneak in a few more myself....mine are all pullets though. The hubby said no more.....I say I need some more variety. I really want a turken, a silkie and a crested.....I think I'll wait until next spring...maybe he'll forget...teehee.

    Quote:Lea...we are thinking alike! My husband says the same thing but the more I read about the different breeds, the more I want more. But..they are done selling them in this area so I'll wait until next year [​IMG]
