    Ahhh, I love being in FFA. My teacher knows of me having pet chickens and was like "Hey Grant! Some lady called me this morning asking if I wanted these four pullets (because where she lived it is illegal)... So I am gonna give you her number and then you can pick them up and keep them!" I was like [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] lol. I don't know what I am going to do, since the legal limit is 10 in my area and I already have 5 chickens. But I have three copper maran chicks and one is a pullet (the other roos [​IMG] [​IMG] ) and I plan on keeping her. And I put 6 eggs in the incubator for fertility rates so I can start selling eggs and chicks on here! [​IMG] And on top of this... My mom doesn't even know about the eggs in the incubator, or the 4 chicks... But I told her I was going to raise meat birds (I crossed my pure cornish with my polish roo for two eggs and they are in the incubator with my pure polish eggs), so maybe that will be my excuse for these new birds lol. But I just wanted to tell you how excited I am.. Now watch me end up with some diseased fill ugly mutt looking chickens [​IMG]

    There is no such thing as 'no' when it comes to free chicks. It's just how it has to be [​IMG]

    Can't wait to see pictures of them, enjoy your chicken math [​IMG]
