So I'm only suppose to have 20 chickens. But I am certifiably crazy. So two weeks ago, on a whim I won an auction of revolutionmamas eggs.... good stuff. BUT, the Post office massacred them. They all arrived shells intact but most were airsacs ruptured and scrambled. Laree is cooking them for me... of the 17 only 6 remain and they are iffy. So I figure MAYBE I'll get 2 or 3... fine and dandy, I have a broody to stick them under. But now the crazy part... at least 4 or 5 times in the past week I've gone onto Ideal's site and figured the 25 pullets I want to also put under the broody, you know, tried and tested layers, RIR, 236s, CQs, BSLs, BRs, I've gotten to the point where all I had to do was click purchase... I mean, I had in the credit card info in, security code, everything and then I.... "chicken out"... I've even bid on a few more hatching eggs auctions, but then I'd have to get the bator out and DW has made clear, NOT THIS YEAR. I'll just be patient. Wait till spring and get some chicks from my good friend in MO. They'll be better quality and what I really want anyway. And it will give me time to build a nice grow out pen/2nd breed pen that looks a lot more stealth than what I had before. Anyone else THIS CRAZY?!?!?!?!?
