    I walked in the feed store and there they were the first batch of chicks! Of course I walked out with 3 of the little buggers! A buff orpington, a welsummer and a americana! My DH is NOT going to be impressed when he gets off of work! Sigh........Oh well. [​IMG]

    Well I also have 31 eggs in the bator and my little coop is FULL! We are moving in the next month to five acres and a bigger house so I can't wait to expand and enjoy the country air. Right now we are in town and have great neighbors but I am not sure how long that would last if I had fourty chickens running around our back yard! One of my hamburgs jumped the fence the other day and I thought for sure the neighbors two labs were gonna have her for a snack, But between me the kids and the neighbors we got her caught and then she bit the neighbor when he reached over to scratch her head. She wasn't very appreciative I guess. [​IMG]

I may need to make a "secret trip" tommorow. :lol:lol We have so many, I'm sure that my husband wont even notice...right???? I sold some of my silkies yesterday so I am pretty sure that some new girls would be justified, right?????? [​IMG]
