    I come home with six fuzzy butts. Three light brahmas and three silver sebrights. I needed more chicks like I need a hole in the head. [​IMG]
    Hubby said "not again", but he's just as hooked as me. What an awesome guy! [​IMG]

    I'm headed to the feed store this afternoon to buy one of my broodies chicks to replace her failed hatch.

    I could have been sneaky about it and not told DH. He doesn't have a clue how many chicks I have running around (and I prefer it thataway), but I told him my plan and he's okay with it. Errr, well at least he didn't say no.

    Well my one broody is now the mama of the chick she hatched, a trahma and 3 baby polish. My other broody, due to hatch tonight/in the morning (but only one egg is viable) is now the proud mama of (what I think are) 5 black jersey giants.

    DH asked me on the phone how many I got total, well dear...ummm..well...errrr....you see...... [​IMG]

    Congrats on you babies. At least y'all dont work at a feed store. I brought 2 brown leghorns and 2 DelawareXhamps home. 3 weeks ago brought 4 golden sebrights and my neighbor gave me a little black bantam I have no idea what she is and my broody has 7 babies. I also have out in one of the coops 2 EE's 2 white rocks 1 welsummer 2 buff bantam cochins 1 silver penciled cochins 2 silkies and 1 SLW that are about 6 weeks old. Did I mention I want some austra whites and JG's that are coming in in a week? [​IMG]
