    That would be nice to have a pair. We had hoped for more, but it didn't work out. Maybe next hatch.

    Oh yeah. Looks like there's quite a personality in there. lol



    Your cat is beautiful! My ragdoll wanted to eat my blue pullet when I first brought her home. lol Or he wanted to have her for a play toy...one of the two. [​IMG] I didn't think it was as good of an idea as he did, of course.

    I'm totally bummed after going to a big animal swap today. I was hoping to find silkie hens there. I would like some other colors. Needless to say, I came home empty handed. :(

    LOL..Yes, he is here! It wasn't funny at the time but now looking back if anyone would have seen me they would have thought I was crazy! I heard a commotion buy the bushes. Henry must have called all the youngsters under the bush when he seen the hawk coming. I had seen the hawk on top of Henry so I go running over and realized I had a wooden spoon in my hand. Here I was all ready to take this hawk on with a wooden spoon! LOL

    Very very rare this time of the year... This is breeding season for alot of people and there are only a few reasons they would get rid of females right now. Even the pet quality gals can be used as broodies. Right now you are seeing the egg-eaters, the extremely old ones that aren't producing anymore, or sometimes the ones that pull from their growout pens because they aren't good enough. Bet bet right now is to buy a box full of chicks from someone and hope to get a few girls out of the deal. Late fall is when most breeders narrow down on stock and sometimes you can pick up some decent pullets/hens then.
