Yay for the possibility of more chicks in spring! Husband says we can get three more (so limiting). We will probably get an Australorp, husband wants a blue or lavender bird, prob an Orp, he doesn't want anything bearded but if say Meyer announced they were carrying Isbars... I'm torn I would really like a nice solid red hen but RIR have a certain reputation and we had bad luck with our Buckeye... We both also like the idea of a Sussex but he doesn't like the look of the speckles. Of course if they started selling Favaucanas then all bets are off. I know I could order from MPC but I really prefer being able to pick them up. Have you shown your mom the Silver Penciled Rocks?
