It's been a rough week, and I want to thank everyone who posted words of support and encouragement. I'm not sure I'm truly ready to start over again, but I don't have much time before the feed stores will be done carrying chicks, so I guess it's now or wait until next year(I definitely don't want to do that). The men at our local Southern States were extremely helpful and kind to me while I was trying to figure out what was happening to our chicks, even though we didn't purchase from them. That kind of personal care and service means a lot to me, so we've dedided to get our next batch from them. Monday they'll have Golden Laced Wyandottes, and Leghorns, and EE's and Golden Comets the following week. I definitely want some EE's and Comets again, but am intrigued by the Wyandottes. I'm fairly certain that I don't want Leghorns, but someone may know something about them that may change my mind. I'd love to hear from anyone who's had these breeds, the pros and the cons, so that I may make an informed decision. Thanks in advance for any advice or info.
