    I have some tolbunt polish chicks, so I got some gold laced eggs so I could work on them, none hatched. All developed but never made it to the end. I was getting feed yesterday and asked why they didn't get any variety in this year(all basic layers). She said, well I am getting some polish in tomorrow. I gave them my number and asked them to call me. Got the call and I go in. They only have 2 and they have nice beards and ok crests so I grab them both. I go to the register and he gives me my balance and tells me, ya know you have a $10 credit on your account(points earned). I ask if I can apply it and he said no, need to spend $10...why don't you grab another chick?? Me, of course walk back to the brooder and see this little banty that I had no idea what it was. I get home and check the hatchery website they got them from and look through the list...only one chick there I don't know what it looks like so I click and BINGO, I got a pyncheon [​IMG] . So me being me couldn't have just one of these and went and got the other 2 they had...just what I needed...another breed!!!

    I went to our farm supply store for another gallon waterer today. They had some americanas/ araconas most likely easter egger chicks that just came in this morning. I have two easter eggers now that give me colored eggs and I love getting cream and blue eggs. So I had to pry myself away. I get to the check out and My total was $7 and some change. The guy tells me I have to spend $10 to use my debit card. So I told him to give me two biddies. I am in deep chicken litter with my husband! This makes 20 chickens and 1 duck. I started with 2 chickens in February. My 17 year old called me a chicken hoarder! Help!
