    I feel like my son on Christmas Eve!

    The chickens I've been planning for, working towards their coop completion, reading here and in books about.....



    Actually, I'm going to pick them up from the farm. 10 Black Java chicks (straight run) will be here on Tuesday!

    Really, it's here!


    I might not sleep between now and then! Fussing over the brooder, getting supplies ready, reading more here (I thought I'd have hens! Not chicks!) -


    Had to share, as my human companions are looking at me like I've lost it. (My sons are so not impressed, my husband's not so sure about this whole endeavor but is going along with it, and I'm just so [​IMG]!)

    [​IMG] and congrats on the Java's![​IMG]

    I know your excitment! Just wait! Before you know it, your dh will be hooked and then start planning the "Expansion". Researching chicken breeds and building another coop for "his"
    chickens. I see more chickens in your future. Just wait.... mark my words......[​IMG]
    I had a was a good plan....until my dh wanted to keep a few of the ones I was going to cull or find homes for just because he liked them.[​IMG] *sigh*. Of cource I'm married to an Enabler who is just as bad as me![​IMG]
    Maybe you should keep your chickens away from the fam and be all mysterious with them.....that way, hopefully, your plan won't go a-rye like mine did.
    Have fun with your new chicks!!
