    So I was surfing on Craig's List (bad....bad) and I saw an ad for pullets... BR and RIR... from the guy I got my hens and rooster from. I really want some younger BR and RIR EVENTUALLY..... but they are 5 wks old. I am moving my FBCM today so would have plenty of room in the quaranteen pen for some new hens that I need like I need a hole in my head..... aaargh! I am thinking 2 BR and 2RIR....[​IMG]

    Since you already got the rooster and hens from the same guy, you know you'll take good care of them and they'll fit right in....go for it!!!

    Well duh! Didn't you take chicken math 101? So I am guessing you said you wanted 2 and 2, I bet you come home with somewhere between 5&7. [​IMG] I am up to 44 birds, no idea how that happened!! [​IMG] Must be that chicken math everybody talks about. I never was very good at math. [​IMG] Post pics when you get home with your new birds!
