    Yippee yahoo!

    I just unexpectedly scored a trio of rumpless splash bantam araucanas -- off craigslist! Yippee!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    And yes, I've seen a photo -- they ain't EEs. [​IMG]

    The roo is at least unilaterally tufted, hens clean faced, all rumpless.

    I am now busy calculating all the different ways I can make blue babies using the birds I've already got. And calculating just how many pens I'm gonna need by springtime! [​IMG]

    This is getting insane. I was supposed to have 6-8 chickens when I got settled in here.

    I've already got.....ummmmm......lemme count.....ummmmm....30. NOT counting this new trio.

    Somebody pull the plug on my computer, before I buy again!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    WOW thats allot of chickens first I said 6 then 12 now I am up to 17 so I am taking is slower then you but its only bin a year [​IMG] and I am expecting a broody explosion next spring and with so many nice breeders in the area I am not far from Will Marrow at whitmore farm or peachick and possible with my own flock rooster next spring I will be up allot higher and then need to sell off a bunch of chickens and get back to a resonable number or I might just hatch my own mutts and blue coppers for a while.

    Nanny nanny boo boo, I found them first! [​IMG]

    They are currently up in Portland (TN). They supposedly came from a breeder in KY, but I don't know the breeder's name (yet). The current owner will be bringing them down to Lebanon on Saturday. Yay me! [​IMG]

    Interestingly enough, the current owner also has bantam ameraucanas. It may be a good idea to get to know her better!

    I'll take some pics when I get them!

    Papa Reggie! Reggie is in North Carolina I believe (now that you ask I am not sure. Don't you love it when that happens). Anyway he has nice bantams. I am hoping he has 2 Black pullets for me. I was going to get some back in the spring but my car had the nerve to break and I had to put it on hold. Oh well I hope he has some now. I also want to get in touch with Nancy Utterback and get some from her, she is in Illinois.
