I got an order a couple of days ago from a friend that wants some meat birds, but not cornish rock x. So I figured I'd get some Buff Orpingtons and keep a hen or two for my personal collection. Well, that chalks up the egg count to 18. Now, I was wishing I had some more Silkies running around. So, I went and bought another 10-12. Well, another friend wants a welsummer rooster. I want a welsummer hen. So, I ordered some welsummer eggs. That brings the total egg count up to 42 or around! Now here is the problem... no one in my family knows that i bought them! They think we have too many birds (Which I strongly disagree with ) They all have room to be happy and be chickens, as soon as there isn't enough space for them I'll stop. As far as they know, I am hatching three eggs for a friend. Wait until the mail comes on Monday!
