    I went to the Co-op to get Aspen and straw and then somehow these three Buff Orpington Chicks got out of their brooder and into a box my 9 year old was holding. Then they followed us back to the van, and home! Do you think my husband will buy that? [​IMG]

    But really, I wanted some Buffs from the get go and they were back ordered when I first placed my order in Feb. Last week at the Co-op they told me they had Buff's earlier in the week but were sold out and wouldnt be getting more. Somewhere along the way someone was misinformed because they had a brand new shipment Monday. How could I resist? They are right by the front door! Do they not KNOW that I have no will power to my three begging children who love their chickens? [​IMG]

    Husband works nights and will wake up soon to three new chicks in the brooder. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Quote:I thought about this. I could have lived without the aspen but needed straw for outside things. I COULD have gotten it at Walmart but their straw is not covered. That was my excuse. LOL

    My most recent episode of having no will power at all, was just the other day when I was cruising the forum and then, right in front of my eyes popped some big fluffy Wyandottes! All of the sudden I had NO will powere and I was forced by myself to put that order in immediatly! My dad may be a little surprised to see what 20 Wyandottes look like, in the middle of his livingroom! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    i am totally shocked, stunned and amazed at that story, you really expect him to believe it was only three??????? of course at that age, they probably can't do chicken math yet [​IMG]

    This Chicken Math is going to be the end of me I believe. We wanted a few hens for eggs, settled on 6. But ordered 12 incase some were Roos or we lost some early on. No, those 12 are all pullets and doing well.

    Then we got 3 more, then 3 today.

    Plus the one we already had.

    Now our original goal of 6 hens has turned into owning 19 chickens. [​IMG]

    He just looked at me and rolled his eyes. I said, "What?! The kids wanted them!" He said, "Yahhhh...the kids right? " He knows how I feel about my chickens! [​IMG]
