    We have a friend who owns a strawberry farm and treated us with 4 quarts of day old strawberries. After slicing them all up, I was heading to the compost pile with the strawberry tops and the girls came running over as usual to see me. [​IMG] I decided to throw out a few to see if they liked them, and man oh man, chaos ensued!

    Long story short, my quick 5 minute trip to the compost pile turned into a 45 minute strawberry fest with the girls. After they got their fill of strawberries, they all sat down around me and just clucked and preened.

    It was chickie heaven, I tell you.

    Oh, and I just placed an order for 10 Silver-laced Wyandottes and 1 Buff Orpington Roo who will be joining my mixed flock of 5 Buff Orp, 4 Barred Rock and 3 Black Australorpe hens.

    We're also on the prowl for a couple of pygmy goats. I've got 13 acres to fill you know [​IMG]

    Just thought I'd share. [​IMG]

    Just called Ideal and found out my delivery date will be July 13th! Friday the 13th. [​IMG]

    I only ordered 11 birds and she said they typically pack a bunch of "extras" in with them, but couldn't tell me how many to expect.

    Anyone have an idea how many extras to expect?

    Thanks-
    Jess
