    If I didn't have a limitation in my city, I would have the same problem. I'm already bending the rules by claiming the grey area of "six per dwelling" and counting the mother-in-law house so I can have more! Not that the poultry police have come for me yet, but if they do, we have some semantics to argue!

    Love your new babies. Love that YOU love your new babies too! :D

    I am in the city with limits and those little cute chicks and the thought of wanting blue eggs made me go over my limit. I hope the chicken police don't come for me. lol! I totally understand. I told my husband we have to move to the country.

    I got mine from our dickey bub farm store ..

    ( I got six more today but not easter eggers )

    Promised my little cousins they could pick whatever breed they wanted out of a hatchery book .

    And I'd get them two to raise

    Well konner (4) picked " a solid white one"
    That leaves me tons of options and at dickey bub they just so happen to have white rocks ...
    There's konners two ... but there's a 6 minimum ..
    I've never raised any of these red kinds ill get one of each
    So now I have a red sex link a golden comet a new hampshire red and a rir
