    Chicken math stikes again, and it was my wife and daughters fault.

    We went to a breeder yesterday to find an Ameraucana for my daughters Christmas present. Short story is we left with a Wheaton Ameraucana, a Blue Ameraucana, 2 BLRWs, a French Black Copper Maran, a Welsummer and a Lav Orpington that my wife wanted because it was purple.

    Then we went to a local auction and bought some baby ducks, my wife wanted A baby duck. I had to buy 5, planning on taking some to anther sale on Tues. Nope, now she wants to keep all 5.

    i increased my small flock of backyard chickens by 12 in one day.

    Don't worry. Once you get the hang of it 12 will just be a fond memory!

    Sorry. This post made me really laugh out loud. It's addicting. Here's hoping they're all hens.

    My mom has a few hens as well, plus some Bantam Cochins. Well over 50 birds at our house now.
